Replaced HD, system does not recognize new drive
My Mac was crashing so I bought a new Western Digitial 7200 RPM drive and I wanted to install it clean.
I have a 10.6 Disc and when I boot to it I don't see any option for my hard drive.
I thought it was the cable but I put the old Toshiba drive in and it sees it fine.
Could it be the cable or the drive is not usable. Also I did format the western digital drive on another Mac to OS X Journaled Extended with GUID table.
After that I stil did not see it in the disk utility from the disc or when trying to install the OS.
Also I did use a usb sata cable and connected it to my western digital drive and it did see the drive in the 10.6 cd's disk utility But once I use the internal cable it did not see the western digital drive.
Thanks in advance.
Is this a good question?
