    Re-installing Mac OSX Lion - Running Bootcamp
    Hi,

    I need to re-install lion on my mac, I have a hard-drive that has two portions - Mac and Bootcamp windows.

    Everything on the Mac hard-drive has been erased, it's completely blank. I can only run bootcamp windows at the moment.

    I have my Lion OSX disc and I was just wondering how to re-install this back onto the mac hard-drive portion?

    Thanks, i'm just a bit lost.

    When you run the lion installer, just target the erased partition. It will goof up bootcamp, but if you use rEFIt, then it won't matter. I am currently using rEFIt I am running Snow, Lion and Win7 on the same drive.
