i have Imac.

I installed 9.1 first. (no problem)

then OSX.

While installing OSX, Select A Destination box comes up on screen.
There are two options:
1. untitled 28GB
2. Mac OSX install CD 564 MB.

Well, i can not even select #1 option (26gb) so i can not proceed with the installation..can uhelp? thanks..
what to do?
Have you tried the keyboard pad direction keys? Sometimes this works. Also check your memory out, I could not install the X.04 Upgrade and I couldn't figure out why. I had a combination of PC100 & PC133 memory. It upgraded fine with the PC100 removed or the PC133 removed. This problem hasn't been documented anywhere I know of.
I tried your suggestion, but to no avail.

I just bought the hard drive, installed it.
Installed 9.1 with no problem.

But Os X is not detecting the HD so I cannot proceed with the installation.

Do you have any other ideas? This is really annoying. OSX should should be compatible with an Imac.
Thanks in advance.

You have to install MAC OS X at a partition smaller than 8 GB. This one will appear a possible destination drive.

At least in my case (old imac)this worked.
