So I was messing with installing lion and i messed up and hit the wrong button in disk utility and deleted my OS X partition :eek:

my problem is that i dont know where my restore drive is (it got lost when i moved).

Does anyone know what version of OS X has to be install. I've tried using a snow leopard disk and i either get a prohibited sign (/) or else i get the gray restart screen.

anyone know what i can do? I basically have 1400 worthless brick right now

If you were trying to install Lion, you should know the answers to all these questions.

Call apple. They will charge you for the USB replacement. Don't mention Lion.
