I just tried to Install OS X on my new Seagate Momentus 7200.3 HD with the install disk that came with my new MBP. When I get to the prompt where it asks where you would like to install OSX no drive location is showing up. Can anyone help me?
Thanks!

Mesaprs86, Any luck with that drive? I just got the same HD and the new MBP. I also bought an enclosure. I'm completely new to OSX. I have not even turned on the computer yet. Do I install the new drive into the computer and then install the software from the cd? Or do I have to copy the original HD to the new one in an enclosure? I've looked at the videos online, but they all seem to be aimed at people who are replacing a drive that already has been used for awhile. What is the best way to do a completely clean, new install. What did you end up doing Mesaprs86?
