    The new hard drive runs, but the Macbook just spits the Macbook install disc out. I press c and everything when I turn on the computer, but nothing works. The new hard drive is a Seagate 160 GB that I bought earlier this year. Does anybody have a clue what my problem is?:confused:

    So you cannot boot from the disks, correct?

    Are these the disks that came with your computer?
