I am not able to install MAC on my AMD 64 3000+ computer as i am not able to choose any harddrive in order to install the OS after booting in to DVD and when tried to open Disk Utility there are not drives or paritions visible which can be formatted.


I have tried using different Hard Drives. Below are the Hard Drive Specs. I have used:


1. 80 GB Seagate SATA.

2. 160 GB IDE

3. 40 GB IDE


I have tried all the possible things to resolve this issue but I end up with only failue....


Can some one please help me with this issue.
