    Background: I received a Mac Mini for my birthday from my husband. I've had my wonderful Mini for less than 2 weeks and am trying to get used to it after working with a MS/Dell system since the early 1990's.


    I accidentally deleted Bootcamp and now when I click on the bootcamp icon on my desktop I get the following error message:

    The alias “My Boot Camp” can’t be opened because the original item can’t be found.

    What do I need to do to reinstall/make this work again?

    Did you delete the Bootcamp partition? In finder, does BOOTCAMP appear under Macintosh HD?

    If not, then you might as well delete the alias, and re partition and reinstall Windows, using Bootcamp Assistant.
