macbook pro os load issue - Page 2

So is your OSX partition still there? If so, you need to hold the option key while booting.

no. the OSX partition is not there. when i started i had Backtrack 7 on it. i just removed that and put Windows 7 on it because the Mac OSX discs would not load at all (which i still cannot figure out). The reason i have windows 7 on it now is to try to do any troubleshooting needed to get OSX back on it. when i hold the option key when booting, it takes me to the boot menu. if i have a OSX disc in the drive, it will detect it, show me its the OSX disc, but lock up when i double click to start it. But a windows 7 disc will load just fine taking those exact same steps....

i am completely stumped..... along with confused as to why teh discs appear to be blank when viewing them on the windows 7 OS on the macbook.

so i just inserted the same discs into a macbook pro of the exact same model and it also hangs when trying to boot from the dvd. am i missing something? these are the dvd's that came with the macbook pro's from apple...

with that in mind, what are my choices to get OSX back onto the macbook pro that has been running backtrack for a few months, since the dvd's that apple sent obviously are not working....

There should be 2 disc, 1 being the actual OS and the other has a bunch of applications such as iLife.

yeah, im inserting disc 1 which is the actual OS install disc. when inserting it into either macbook pro's it just hangs. when inserting it in a windows 7 machine i cannot see any files on the disc. i have tried different copies of the same official disc from apple which came with the laptops. even the one with a OSX install on it hangs when trying to launch from the dvd.... why is this so difficult?
