Normally requires that you properly prepare the new HD. Launch Disk Utility, erase and reformat the HD, Mac OS X Extended, then try the Migration Assistant. FWIW, I recommend cloning your existing HD to the new one after its properly prepared, using something like Carbon Copy Cloner or SuperDuper!, rather than using the Migration Assistant, which is designed to transfer to another HD that had the OS installed on it. Cloning eliminates that step and ensures that both HDs act and look the same.27" i7 iMac 10.6.8 , Mac OS X (10.7.3), G4 450 MP 1.5 GB RAM w/(10.5.8/10.4.11/9.2.2)

The drive may need to be repartitioned. Use Disk Utility -> Partition tab -> under Volume Scheme, select One partition -> click Options -> select GUID partition scheme -> click Apply button.
