Formatting A HDD

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I took out an old windows HDD to put in my macbook. After trying to install I got an error about the formatting of the drive being incorrect. What do I need to do to get it to work?

You need to format the drive as a guid format or boot from the install dvd and use disk utility to re-format the drive to Mac OS Extended (journaled) under a intel mac it will automatically be formatted as GUID Partition Table and you woll then be able to install OS X without issues.

If problems persist lets know and more help will follow
