after I installed Lion DP 2 on my Lion partition (And by default, it boots up on that partition now), My computer couldnt reboot (taking forever), so I shut it off and booted it up again (about 30 min ago). it's still loading. help?

Can you boot into the recovery partition? Boot from a CD?

I held the option key after booting it up for a thrid time, and i just selected my standard partition. To hell with Lion DPs, theyre causing me too much trouble.

Thanks, but i tried the opt+boot and it selected the 10.6 partition. Erasing Lion. Everything's fine.

Glad you are able to get back into SL at least.
