    hello everybody,
    during the install of windows xp via boot camp, i accidentally erased my os x partition.
    the Windows Install is completed, but the mac os x is gone.
    while i'm pressing the option key, there is no os x part....
    i've tried everything, including trying to insert the os x install disc pressing c, but wasn't helpful.
    please, i already googled it, but i can't find any good solution.

    Mac book, Leopard

    You should be able to boot from the OS X install DVD that came with your Macbook by holding the c key while booting. Once booted start Disk Utility from the Utilities menu and reformat the drive to one partition of Mac OS Extended, then reinstall the OS.

    Of course you will lose any data on the drive by doing this.

    Thanks for your help.
    Problem solved.
    there was a problem with the superdrive, so i had to install snow leopard via external hard drive.
