    Hi,

    I've installed Lion DP4 on my Snow Leopard HDD on my 2011 MacBook Pro, but it hangs every time on the installation progress. Does anyone know how to cancel the installation of Lion, because I can't boot the original Snow Leopard now; the only option there is Mac OS X Installer partition now.

    Thank you in advance.

    Kai.

    All i can suggest is restore from a time machine backup or whatever means you used to backup.

    If you can see the Lion installation screen and the menu at the top, click on Apple logo in the top left corner and choose Startup Disk. Then select your SL hard drive and restart. Worked for me, no need to restore from backup...
