    Hey Guys,

    first of all sorry for my english that is not my native language so most probably I can't explain my problem to you as detailed as I should but I will try.

    So the problem is the following:
    - OSX (El Capitano) is the default OS however the iMac (late 2009) boots itself up in Windows (7).
    - OSX startup keys just NOT working I mean none of those (command-r, shift, c, alt/option).
    - Windows is only able to boot in Safe Mode otherwise it freezes at the splash screen.

    Any idea? May I say goodbye to my HDD?

    I'm going to take a guess and say that the OS X partition was either deleted or is unreadable. Possibly due to a partitioning command being used from windows side. You shouldn't ever adjust partitions while in windows with OS X. Unless you know what you're doing

    I don't know why the cmd+R etc wouldn't work :(
