    Exclamation I deleted HD while trying to intsall Windows!
    I deleted HD by picking the wrong drive or something. Anyway its gone. When I tried to re-install OSX buy apparently there is nothing to intall OSX on, nor Windows. Now my brand new iMac is just a usless hunk of plastic and metal, please help me!

    Well, that is all I really know.....

    On the bootcamp guide it tells you to pick "partion C", I didn't. Now HD is gone. At first I thought I could just redo this whole mess by poping in the OSX install disk, well when it wanted me to select a drive, there was nothing to pick. So I guess HD is gone.

    Well when you put in the OSX disk, there should be a menu bar at top. Under "tools" there should be Disk Utility.

    Use Disk Utility to create a new partition to install OS X onto.
