i deleted my mac partition while dual booting ubuntu on it.i successfully installed ubuntu OS. i found a way to recover it and that was by using testdisk. i sucessfully recovered but the problem is that i can't access. the ubuntu people on their forum said i need a program to boot into it but they didn't how to help me get it. i have burned a refit Live CD but everytime i restart my mac and insert the live CD, it gets ejected. i need help in accessing my mac partition.

here is the screenshot of the the partitions
the partition is called /dev/sda1

Is your optical drive working and do you have your original start up - install DVD for the Mac? If you do....

First, reset the PRAM. Next, boot the machine with the install DVD and remove all those partitions. Setup the hard drive as a single partition and reinstall OS X.

Then... download the free VirtualBox software from Oracle and create as many virtual machines as you need for Ubuntu, XP, or any other OS. As long as you have enough memory, you can run all those as a VM. No need to partition and multi boot.
