    I recently partitioned my HDD into two parts and have yet to install anything on the other part. Now, I can't access my OS X partition because it seems the Apple wireless keyboard doesn't connect when booting up. I hold Option and it just continues booting into the empty partition. Any way to fix this without a USB keyboard? I don't own one.

    I have the Logitech bluetooth keyboard and can still choose my startup disk when booting by holding down the Option key, not sure what the problem is with the Apple device. I would suggest you selecting the Startup Disk in your System Preferences before rebooting instead.

    Edit: I just noticed you posted the 2nd partition had nothing installed? Unless you have a valid Operating System (Mac/Windows/Linux etc), to boot off of, the Mac will always boot into your original drive with OS X.
