    So I was playing around a bit some time ago with Boot Camp on my new Macbook Pro.

    I was planning on Dual booting with winows, so had heard of Boot camp and gave it a try.
    I went through the guide, and resized my harddrive.
    But before actually starting the Windows installation, I changed my mind. (Using virtualbox instead).
    I rebooted back into OS X and launched Boot Camp to restore Harddrive again.
    So far everything is good.
    I mostly use sleep so did not notice until I had to reboot some days later.
    Now my Mac starts up it hangs for a while and then I get a black screen with white text that says, No bootable device -- insert boot disk and press a key.
    Pressing a key will not boot it.
    Only option is to hold Power button for 5 sec to turn off computer.

    After scouting a bit I found that Holding the Option(alt) key when turning on PC, or rebooting I get to choose internal harddrive as a boot option.
    Using that method I can start up the Mac.
    I tried to run the disk repair utilities included, but they all come out with no problems detected.

    Anyone have a good idea what has happened here, and how I can fix it?

    I called Apple and they told me about the System Preferences -> Startup Disk.
    This solved it, it was set to Network boot!?

    Wow I feel like a noob, but then again in Mac world I am. :)
