pop the restore disk in.

Restart while keeping the C key pressed to boot from the optical drive

When the installer screen appears select Disk Utility from the Utilities in the top menu

Reformat the main drive (not each partition) to Mac OS Extended (Journaled) with Disk Utility

Quit disk Utility and return to the install screen.

Continue with a fresh install of OSX
