    I purchased a new solid state HD for my MacBook Pro. I made a bootable OS X Lion DVD, and I turned on the MBP, put in the bootable disc, turned it off and then turned it on while holding down the C key...after a few minutes the installer came up. I went through the beginning, accepting the license, but when it came to the window where it asks " Select The Disc Where You Want To Install OS X", the window is empty, no HD comes up.

    Am I doing something wrong? Do I have to first format the drive before attempting to install? Thanks in advance for the help
