    Okay

    You are going to lose everything on your Mac if you do this, but recovery may not be an option.

    1) Start your mac and insert the SL disk into the optical drive.

    2) Shut down (LEAVE the disk in)

    3) Hold down CMD and Option at the same time and reboot your Mac.

    4) Re-install SL

    5) Re-download Lion (It should be free if you bought it) Via App store

    6) Install Lion

    7) I Don't get people who Bootcamp.....Sorry, just me

    Post back and let us know how you get on:)
