hey guys thanks in adv for any advice.....
so today i got my macbook (09'?) back from the apple store (logicboard problem) and they wiped the hd as well. so i wanted to have lion on there, but it was currently on 10.5.6, so i decided i should put in the snow leopord disk, so i could get the mac app store, and download lion. i accidentally put in the original startup disk, which for some reason, fails to complete the installation every time.

My question is: how do i get the disk outta the system so i can put in the snow leapord disk??????????
the laptop is currently off.
QUOTE Thanks
