    Which version of Mac OS X do you have?

    10.7.2 -->Lion

    This was caused by a failed ubunto install.

    Ah, trying to install Ubuntu, I see. Since Lion doesn't have an install disc, is your Recovery Partition still intact? If it is, then try booting from it, and running Disk Utility from there. (Hold :apple:+R at startup)

    Recovery HD is fine.
    I'll try.

    ----------

    Failed...

    Just a thing.
    Can i go to the recovery HD wipe the disk and install Lion again on a wiped disk?

    Cant seem to do it any other way.

    I've seen linux distro installs completely ******* with the partition mapping on macs (10.6 at least). As recommended, try from the recovery partition.

    Otherwise, save your data and start from scratch.
