Computer: Macbook Pro 13", used to have OSX Mountain Lion on it, but I had to wipe/reinstall. So, I hadn't done a reformat/reinstall in quite a while. So, I followed these steps: 1) Plugged in flash drive with OSX Mountain Lion 2) Restarted Mac (Holding down [Option] key) 3) Chose to boot to the flashdrive (disk image for Mountain Lion on it) 4) I then chose the disk utility tool chose the "Mac Osx" partition and chose to erase. After some time it stopped stating an error about encryption of the partition. 5) The drive as it stands, is recognizable if I restart and press Option Key, but, if I just try to boot from my flash drive and install... it starts loading to reinstall OS, but then cannot find the harddrive anymore.. it just says "Searching for harddrive" ... forever. 6) I then tried running the disk utility and "verify disk" and it came back with "the volume is OK". What can I do from here ?????
