    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

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