So I picked up a new SSD for my Wife's Late 2009 MBP, I installed it in the MBP and booted from my SL DVD, and this is where my problem(s) start. Getting to the actual SL install took 10 minutes, once there, the SSD didn't show in the Disk Utility Menu, but showed up in System Profiler. I removed the SSD and plugged it into a external enclosure, and was able to format it on my Mac, repeated the install procedure, same results. The drive shows up on the desktop and am I able to write to it when I have it plugged in to my Laptop via external. I haven't tired to instal SL from within my install of SL, but when I load up the installer, it shows the SSD drive available for install. Not really sure what to think about this one... looking for any suggestions.
