    Put old drive in USB caddy and boot from that? Should be able to install from it.

    I had the exact same problem recently when installing a 128GB Crucial M4 SSD to my 2011 base model MM. What you need to do is go into the disk utility and reformat the SSD to what OSX uses (HSF journeled or whatever it's called).

    Did you get it done? Also what SSD did you put in and can you give any pointers to the installation?
