I've been searching for hours for a solution, and as far as i'm aware this hasn't been discussed online before.

I installed bootcamp, but windows onto the same partion as osx, therefor overwriting my osx.

So windows works fine...but does no good for the game i wanted to play (probably due to the mobile processor version it runs on or something?). So put in my osx discs, during install it complains the disc is dirty. I take it out, clean, put back in and now it thinks there is no space on the hdd to install onto, 0kb!

I have no apple care, and no money atm to pay for repair.

Any suggestions, please?!

If you're intention is to restore OS X back, then during installation, go into Disk Utility and ask it to erase the contents of your HD and that way it should have the necessary space to install itself..
