Most recent firmware update prevents computer from booting
Hi. I recently attempted to install the most recent firmware and security updates for mac os x 10.5.8 on my macbook pro 17 inch (purchased about 14 months ago). Computer asked me to reboot, i did, it then gave me instructions for firmware updates. The screen went dark, and it did its thing, and I returned 10 minutes later. The computer had not rebooted.
I pressed the startup key and it gave a long beep. Screen remained dark. Some minutes later it ran the boot cycle, but booted into windows (i have dual boot set up). I can only get into windows now.
What is going on?
Thanks for any suggestions.

Boot off your install DVD and from there you'll have a clearer picture on what's going on with the OS X partition.

Hold down the ALT-key when you boot to select bootdevice. OS X and Windows should show up there any other bootable device that is connected
I apologise for my spelling, itīs not my native language.
