Video is private.

You need to format a HD into "Mac OS X extended journaled" before installing OS X. You can find it under "Options, disk utility" I believe when you're trying to boot with a disk. Not sure what OS version you're using, that may also be a factor.

Video does not show and you have to manually format the hard drive prior to installing Leopard. And is the Leopard disc (a) yours (b) a black retail install disc and not (c) a silver grey model specific disc which will never install?

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!
