How can I restore my Hardrive? I think it was erased when I installed Windows Xp Professional in hopes to use VMWare. Now I can not see the Mac OS

    Start up using Command+R and reinstall from your backup.

    Reboot and hold the Option key down from the startup tone.  If the boot manager starts it should give you the option to boot from MacIntosh HD.  Select that.
