    Once the HD had been installed, what will happen when the MacBook is turned on? Will i have to boot from the OS X disc seeing as the HD will be blank?

    Just so you know (I took me a bit to realize this) you format the disk by erasing it. There is no option to "format".

    Make sure its the File format is HFS+ (Mac OS Extended Journaled) for installing OS X 10.4.
