I closed all my apps.
I ran the installer.
I agreed the terms.
I am ask where to install Snow Leopard.
Only one disk is available - my boot disk.
It has a yellow triangle on it.

Selecting the disk tells me "Mac OS X cannot be installed on "Macintosh HD", because this disk cannot be used to start up your computer.".

Rebooting and attempting an install direct from CD yields the same results.

My machine is a six month old aluminium MacBook, and the only difference between it in the shop and today is that it has a customer-installed 500GB hard drive and ditto 4GB RAM in it.

Help.

Neil.

Aluminium Macbook, Mac OS X (10.5.8), 500GB customer installed HD and 4GB customer installed RAM
