    I just installed a brand new hard drive into my 2009 mini and I am trying to install Snow Leopard. I don't want any of the files from the old HD. The install of the hd into the mini went fine (or so it appears) but when I try to install SL on the new hard drive it gets stuck at the window which asks which drive I want to install to. I never get an option for a drive so something is wrong. Any ideas?

    did you partition the drive in the mini? if you did not put the software dvd in and don't call on install . call utilities and partition the drive. use guid format for mac and give it a name you like.
