    Earlier today, i used refind to install a copy of ubuntu i had on a dvd. During partitioning, it kind of hung so i force restarted my ma.
    Nw, i am stuck with a problem i cannot find a solution to on google.

    When i start my mac, the refind boot menu shows up, with two options. Osx and legacy boot. Unfortunately, it is stuck on legacy boot and i cannot switch to osx and boot it. Arrow keys arent helping.

    What to do?? :(

    Did you try booting with the option key and select OS X?
