    I have been put incharge of all the Macs we are getting here at the university and they have purchased a MacBook Pro for me which is giving me trouble. We have installed parallels and that works fine but when you restart the computer it give a "No Bootable Device found. Insert Disk and press any key" error. If I restart it again holding the option key it gives me the option to boot into OSX but it will not boot into OSX normally anymore. How can I fix this?

    I got that on my Mac mini also, I don't know the fix but I share your frustration. It's annoying. I don't even have a windows partition anymore either :rolleyes:

    I think this is caused by the Windows install screwing up the primary partition. Windows set itself as primary when it is supposed to be Mac OS X. Terminal can be a pain if you are unfamiliar with unix command lines.

    Before doing this try using diskutlity on your install dvd.
