    Mid 2010 27" iMac had what I assumed to be a failed hard drive. It would not boot or recognize the hard drive. I replaced the hard drive. Tried to boot it up again, but nothing has changed. I hit the power button, hear the chimes, see the Apple logo and nothing after that. I have tried booting with the option key held, click the install disc and it will go no further. Could someone please help?

    Did you format and prepare the drive for OS X installation? Is it set to boot to the correct drive?

    I am sorry to say that the hard drive was not formatted. I was hoping that the formatting of the hard drive would be done prior to the OS installation automatically. Obviously I was wrong. What steps would you recommend at this point?
