Can't reinstall OS X after SSD installed
Hello and thanks for the support,
I recently replaced my HDD with an SDD doubled my RAM and replaced the battery in my 2009 MacBook pro.
Installation went fine until I wanted to reinstall os x.
1. First my trackpad will not work in utility start up window.
2. I was making due with key commands and got to the reinstall OS X window after reformatting my new ssd in disk utility to Mac extended journaled. I would reach the screen were it says select disk to install osx and it wouldn't let me start the install on the new sdd even though it showed up.
3. I kept trying and now I am getting the blinking folder with a question mark or the circle with a line through and it won't even take me to utility.
4. I have both the original osx install disk and a USB stick with osx Bootable install for maverick. I also have the old hdd in a USB 3 case to use as an external.
And help or suggestions would be much appreciated! Thank you
