Slow downs after partition

Iam running mac os x lion 13 inch macbook pro early winter model and 320 GB Hitachi HD. Do i need to replace the Hard drive?

You kind of erased the drive when you partitioned it, the directory is gone. I don't think it can be recovered except by a recovery company. Go back to disk utilities and READ what it says when you try to partition.

So should I try and do a fresh install of lion?


yes, if you can without installing 10.6.8 first


Do I go on recovery hd? Sorry about asking a lot of questions but can I reinstall lion without deleting my files?
