So my HDD fried in my 2007 Macbook and i formatted a extra HDD i had to use on the macbook.
As i formatted the HDD in Windows 7, and left it with no partitions. and inserted it into the macbook. as i also put in the OS X Lion Disk i burned, every time i try to load from Disk, it never works. ( i Press and hold "C" before the grey screen comes on) After 2 minutes the screen turns black and i get the screen
" BOOTMGR is missing
Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart"
Cant get Disk Utility to show.
What did i do wrong and how could i fix this. urgently trying to install OS X but the disk is not even read by the Macbook. i tried 2 different discs.
i tried pressing Option(ALT) and all i get is the harddrive option to start,
eventhough i have the OS X dvd in the Disk drive.
Could it be that since i was given a burned copy of OS X that it's not working?
(this is that is shown when i hold ALT while the install disk is inserted"
Also im not sure how to use " migration assistant" there are no files in the HDD.
Here's a pic of the HDD i'm trying to use
I posted a video showing my problem:
