I installed an other hd an trieyed it again but it shows the same message.

    Unless that system disc came with the computer when new, it will not install as they are extremely model specific.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
