    Need some major help here.

    I finally decided to upgrade bootcamp from Windows 7 to 8, and in order to get a "fresh start" simply deleted the partition, and re-partitioned using bootcamp.

    Windows 8 is installed now, but I'm unable to boot into Mac OS X now... I need back into OS X.

    The Windows Partition didn't overwrite the Mac part (AFAIK), as it's only showing the 240GB that I allowed it.

    I've tried selecting to boot from an alternate drive within Windows 8, but no other OS shows up.

    I've tried holding down CMD while booting, but it boots straight into Windows regardless.

    Holding down C simply makes it "do nothing", and once I quit holding C, it proceeds to boot into Windows 8.

    I'd ideally like to get back onto OS X with all my data, however if necessary I'll settle without.

    My computer is a rMBP, so I don't have any CDs or anything to boot OS X from.

    Any help is GREATLY appreciated.

    It's not Command to select a boot partition, it's Option. Did you try that?

    Wow. I cannot believe I did that. I was holding the wrong button...

    Thanks. Saved me a huge headache. If I could buy you a coffee, I would.
