    I just got my new macbook pro 13inch in mail today. Also got my new Intel x-25 SSD in mail today too. I installed the hard drive in the new macbook and put in the install cd right away and powered it on. How do I install the operating system?? I go through the steps and when it comes up to selecting where to put the operating system no choices appear. When i got into system profiler under serial-ata drivers it shows the intel SSD with 149.05 GB left. Any ideas on what to do?? Thx

    You have to format the HDD to "Mac OS Extended (Journaled)". Once you boot off the install DVD, on the menu bar at the top there is a Utilities menu. Click on that then Disk Utility. From there, click your HDD and then Erase tab to the right and format to what I stated above. After that, you should be able install.
