i noticed that u clicked a different one that wasnt mac os extended journeled?is your drive mac os extended journaled?
go to disk utility, select your drive, and format it.
please note that formatting it will erase all data, so backup all of that drive's data if you have any.
You don't want MS-DOS FAT for your boot drive! You want Mac OS Extended Journaled. The first option. Name your harddrive while you are at it - do this before you erase the harddrive.i noticed that u clicked a different one that wasnt mac os extended journeled?
should i click journaled?
then what? i click erase?
No, not for just an upgrade. Read the OP please.Why? Just for an upgrade?
so i went out and bought a copy of Mac OS X Snow leopard and i tried installing it and it works till the screen comes up where i have to "select where you want to install"...... and there is no selection for my blank hard drive..?
