    I installed bootcamp on my MacBook Pro and now it won't boot up OS X...every time i try to it tells me to restart and when i do it still i ran disk utility and it tells me there's an error on the disk but it's unrepairable...anyone have any ideas on how i can get in there and ATLEAST back up my stuff? Or hopefully repair the error?

    are you holding down the option key when you reboot?

    that will allow you to choose what OS to boot into... once in OSX go to SYS PREF and choose Start Up Disk and select OSX and it will default boot OSX.

    if that does not work boot to disc utility on your original install disc and repair the HD

    I am actually having this problem now. I have it set to default into Mac OSX, I started up using the alt to log into the Windows partition, and now I cannot get onto the Mac OSX side. I can try using the bootcamp control to restart into Mac OSX and I have tried holding down alt and choosing mac HD, but every time it takes me to windows.
