I just bought the new OS X 10.8 and downloaded but when I tried to install it on my computer Installation Failed and I got this message:

 

"OS X can't be installed on the disk Macintosh HD , because a recovery system can't be created."

 

I tried so many times but the same message comes out to me each time and when I restart the computer I am back to the same OS X installer and can't access my computer any more so I am really stuck I can't install the new OS X version and can't go back to the old OS X version or access my computer.

Please help

My computer is MacBook Pro 13"
