I think I formated the Mac side of my HD! Is this possible? When I hold Option during start up all I get is the windows option! How do I fix this?

uhhm, how long are you waiting? sometimes in OSX the windows partition doesn't show up right away, maybe 5 min later it does. also, what happens when you DONT hold option during startup?

i know, i was wondering how long you waited to see if the OSX side would come up, but since it looks like it goes to the windows side even when you dont do anything, i dont know what to tell you:eek:

Help would be MUCH appreciated! :confused:
This isn't tech support. Don't flip out because no one answered your question in 5 minutes. If it's such a huge issue, call Apple.

Listen jerk! I am in a bit of a situation, I do not need a twit like you making snide remarks! You have no idea how upset I am right now! Why would you bother leaving such a stupid reply?!

First, I'd like to apologize for leaving a "snide" remark, that wasn't my intention. However, bumping your own thread is frowned upon, especially if only 5 minutes has elapsed. Keep in mind that this is not the Apple Tech Support Forum. That would be here: http://discussions.apple.com/index.jspa . Macrumors is a private community and many users are happy to help. However, by leaving messages such as this in a users mailbox, you hinder your quest. I stand by what I posted previously. If the issue is out of your control, call Apple. Granted, they don't support Windows, but your issue seems to be OS X related. Take care.

In the OS X installation, run the disk manager or disk tools whatever its called. I think its in the tools menu. It sounds like when you installed Windows it repartitioned the drive. You need to repartition the hard drive. Select the option for 1 partition. Once done you should be able to install OS X to this new volume and then later use Bootcamp to create the Windows volume.
