    I have a computer which qualifies for the up to date program so i got my free copy of lion but it won't let me pick a disk to install to. it says my macintosh HD partition with SL on it can't be used to start up my computer. what cna i do to fix this?

    EDIT: was able to get installation to work. went in disk utility and decreased size of mac os partition by a very very tiny amount and then installation proceeded like normal. weird but it works...
