Absolutely not, and you may have tried to install over OSX, in which case your Mac is now empty. To test, remove the dvd from the drive, restart and hold the option key as soon as you hear the chime. When the boot manager loads tell me what choices you get.
Did you use Boot Camp to prepare this install or did you just put the Windows disc in the drive?

I started the install through Bootcamp. I took out the disc and restarted. My option is a picture of my Mac hard drive. My regular computer started up when I clicked on the picture of the hard drive. I partitioned through Bootcamp before I tried the install. I removed the partition. I think everything is back to where it was before I tried to install Windows.

$300 is a lot, but what version did you buy (not important really, all versions of W7 work).
Download and read this:http://manuals.info.apple.com/en/boot_camp_install-setup.pdf
Backup your machine (Clone or TM)
Use Boot Camp Assistant to remove the partition and start again.

We always end up asking for more details.
Retail disc or ISO and the DVD as well as the SuperDrive and other factors,, and you will want to have 50GB set aside.
The partition part takes two minutes, the download of Lion (OS version?) takes 30 minutes or 3-9 hrs depending. Those just leave on FAT flash memory card.

Feels like we go backward two steps for every attempt to put one foot in front...
.... sounds like time to return to store, sounds like a copy of Windows 7 ULTIMATE which is rarely needed and not for your needs.
Windows 7 HP x64 System Builder $99 on 'Egg and others (like Amazon).
