When using the recovery mode did you just erase the Mackintosh partition? Normally thats the only part you erase and then after OS X is downloaded the system restarts on its own and boots into the set up screen, did yours not do that?

Can you seen the disk while in recovery mode? To try run diskutil from the terminal with the command:
Also, you should format the disk with a GUID partition scheme. If it still fails try erasing and reformatting the disk from the terminal.
