I have 3 partitions on my iMac. On one partition I have windows installed and other two have Snow Leopard installed. I can boot into Windows but whenever I try to boot into any of the Snow Leopard partition it shows a loading bar at the gray screen below the Apple logo. The loading bar goes upto like 10% and disappears then the loading circle shows up and keep on going forever. I can't even access the Mac files from my BOOTCAMP partition. Is there some software that would let me recover my important files? Also I'm thinking of a doing clean install of Lion but I can't as I can't use Mac OS. Is there a way I can burn OS Lion dmg(I did buy it) in windows as I already have it on my external hard drive. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Well I had a problem where I couldn't boot with Leopard... You COULD just try reinstalling Snow Leopard. That solved whatever problem I had... Mac OS X saves your old files from what I remember.
