    Hey everyone

    I'm in the process of installing Mac OS X from the factory CD. This is the black macbook from 2007. I believe it's Mac OS X Leopard.

    Everything goes smoothly until I go to "Select a Destination, Where do you want to install Mac OS X?" The screen is completely blank white underneath showing 0 options.

    Thanks for your time and take care.

    Just wondering, do you have an external drive around?

    What happens if you connect the external, and THEN try to run the installer?

    Can you see the presence of the external?
    Can you install a copy of the OS to it?
