I need some help with boot camp on mac...

Asked by pplufthesun (591points) June 18th, 2009

Okay, so I attempted to do boot camp, and it worked moderately well with windows on it. However after a little I decided to remove it. I did this by deleting the partition and having only one. Then upon start up after updating, I got to a screen that looked like a windows one that said to boot cd. After restarting again and holding the option key…I selected the mac partition ( the only one there) and it worked. Any help/reasons why this happened?

Because your computer is looking for the wrong ‘Startup disk’ – it’s still looking for Windows.

This can be set by booting into your Mac OS X install, going into System preferences, and clicking ‘Startup disk’ (it’s next to Time Machine, if you’re on Leopard). You can then choose the installation to use when you switch on your computer, and you can confirm this works by restarting your Mac.
