    Alright, the problem is that I lost my Mac OS X partition. Now, all I have is Window XP with boot camp control panel on it. I have been looking around, before you guys say anything. I've seen similar posts where the solution is to insert the installation DVD that came with my MacBook pro, 10.6.3, if that makes a difference. I did exactly as the posts say,
    1. Insert DVD
    2. Restart
    3. Hold Alt when chime is heard
    4. Click on Mac OS X install DVD
    5. Go from there

    Problem is 5, I can't go from there. The screen with the grey Apple logo and the spinning little loading thing doesn't stop, even after hours. So, what can I do?

    Is it possible for you to try another disk. My SL 10.6.4 disk got super scratched and didn't boot so I used my friends (same model, if that even makes a difference) That worked for me.

    How exactly did you manage to lose your partition?
