Sequence of Events on My Macbook Air

 

1. I saw a flashing question mark in the morning on starting my macbook air

2. I then tried the internet recovery of my Macbook air

3. The system took me to a recovery partition where my only option was reinstall the OSX lion

4. I tried following the system till the Mac OSX lion disk selection

5. I do not see any disk to select and hence cannot proceed.
