    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.
