So I thought all was going well with my new HD install; however, upon OS install, i got stuck on the Install Mac OS X- select the disk where you want to install MAC OS X page... There are no options available... Any thoughts on what may have gone wrong?

Under utilities, the new HD is recognized...

Thanks!

Go into the disk utility and format the drive to HFS+, and it should show up as an option.

In disk utility, I don't see the format options...
They are in the Partition tab.
