    Specs:
    15" MBP '06 2.33 C2D 4GB 10.7; 13" MBA '11 1.8 i7 4GB 10.10; 21" iMac '13 2.9 i5 8GB 10.10; 5s & 5c
    Try holding down the option key until you get to the boot menu.

    You are using the disc that shipped with the MBP, right?

    Why are you doing a fresh install? There really is not such a need to do this unless you have been experimenting and damaged/deleted portions of the OS.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    Yes with the disc in. And try to install what you have deleted using a utility called Pacifist which allows you to examine what is on the install disc, and install accordingly.

    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
