I have been looking every where for this answer and at this point I'm sure I'm looking right at it, so I apologize in advance. I bought a new 300 gig hitachi hard drive for my macbookpro after a hard drive crash. Is there anything I need to do before trying to install the OS? Partition? Format?
It goes without saying I appreciate any info you guys can share, and again I apologize if I'm being a pain-in-the-arse for redundancy.
You should be set to go, the first stage of the loading process has access to the disc utility. I imagine you will need to partition and format as drives generally don't come formatted with Mac OS extended. It is pretty easy though
Think it is the 'c' key for boot drive selection...been a while (my 2006 model is still on the original drive).
