I've just bought a new seagate 7200.2 200gb hdd and installed it into the mac fine. However, my problem occurs when i try and install mac OS X. It boots fine but when it asks me where I want to install it to, there aren't any options! I'm guessing it hasn't detected it but I don't know why. I read somewhere about having to format the drive but I really have no idea. Any suggestions guys?

Nick

When you boot from your OS X CD/DVD, you need to look for "Disk Utility" in one of the drop down menus. That should find your new HD and permit you to format it using the "Erase" option. Choose "Mac OS X (Journaled)".

Question:

Which mini do you have.

I have heard that certain powerpc model macs are limited to only 120 gig's.
