    I hope somebody will help me.
    I have iMac G3 Flower Power. 500MHz,512MB,20GB HD.

    I wanted to install 40GB hard drive and upgrade OS.
    1) I replaces Hard Drive,
    2) Booted from exernal HD with OSX 10.4.
    3) Held Option key while booting.
    4) on screen I got an icon of external HD with OSX.
    5) I clicked to install.
    6) erased
    7) When it said - select destination disc - there was nothing.

    So, I was not able to install OSx.

    What step did I miss ?
    Can somebody help ?
    Thanks !:apple:

    new HD - thank you

    Hi,Leon !
    Sorry, I was out of state and did not respon in time!
    Thanks for your help !
    I really, missed the step of formating the disk. I went to Installer later than I have to - was clicking "continue" instead of go to Installer - Dick Utility.
    Now I am OK.
    Was able to finish everything !

    Thanks a lot !
