I just installed a new hard drive in my Powerbook G4; I used the Tiger upgrade disc to format the hard drive using disc utility. This proceeded without issue. Then, I restarted, ejected the Tiger upgrade disc and inserted Panther install disc 1; first I see the Apple logo, then all I see is a strange icon that looks like the universal icon for "do not" as used with traffic signs (a circle with a diagonal line) and that is it! What does this mean?
