    A buddy....riiiggghhttt.
    Copy your files to an external drive.
    Boot from your SL disk and reformat hard drive.
    Install SL.
    Move files back.

    I'm betting it was one of the Dev previews, and it got all buggy on him.

    Itunes didn't work and it wouldn't let me install the update. And it didn't download the recovery partian of the osx lion.
