Cannot format new hard drive?
Ordered a new 1TB SSD Hybrid HD Seagate from i fix it. Took the advice of those on this board and made sure what i ordered was compatible. HD install went well.
Problem: I am now trying to format and boot from the IMAC OS X Snow leopard disk that I have in the drive. I get to the point on start up where I click on the Mac OS install disk on the screen, and then the Apple logo shows up with the rotating gray gear, after a few minutes, and hearing the drive make noise reading the CD I get the GRAY SCREEN that rolls down and tells me I need to restart my computer..
I have spend hours today scrolling through different forums trying to trouble shoot the problem, I was hoping that someone here had the answer before I give up and take it to an authorized dealer..
