    My MacBook is refusing to boot from the hard drive. I went to do the Boot Camp process to install Windows 7, and of course my dumbass didn't print out the 13 page instructions or read them. So I partitioned my hard drive, then put in the Windows 7 disc. After that, boot camp didn't do anything. So of course I was stupid enough as to restart my MacBook and try to boot up from the optical drive by holding down "c."
    When it finished the only thing that came up is a black screen with a 1. and a 2. and it says "Select CD-ROM Boot Type: _ " I can't get past that. I tried restarting and holding down "d," but that didn't work..

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you. ^_^

    Well you can restart and, as soon as you hear the chime, hold down the option key and select your Mac HD to restart to. Then you can re-partition your HD and install W7 normally.
