    hey guys i installed windows through bootcamp, but i think i changed the partition and picked the wrong way to format it without knowing. Now when i hold the option key, only a windows drive appears and no os x one. How do i fix this, i dont mind if windows is gone entirely.

    Unfortunately, it's more likely you wiped out your OSX install. Best to reinstall from your install disk, then migrate your data back from your backup.

    Try booting from the OS X install DVD and then run Disk Utility to see if your OS X partition is still there. If it is, try repairing the disk in Disk Utility and then resetting the PRAM on next boot up.
