    Hi guys,
    Sorry if this kind topic has been discussed before, i just have no time to check.
    So i need your help ASAP.

    So yes i have bootcamp'ed my macbook to windows 7 34bit.
    And i think i made a mistake during installing it.
    Well when given the partition, it was 4 partitions , i chose bootcamp partition, but unfortunately it cant be installed on it, so i tried to format the bootcamp partition, and it's ok, so i have done it.
    But the problem is, i couldn't get into the mac whenever i restart or shutdown and turn on back.
    The screen started with, i think silver ( usual colour when mac turned on)
    Then after afew seconds the screen turned black and windows' basic startup ( i mean like login and etc)
    I've tried many times by pressing Option when mac started, but it didnt work.

    Thanks.
    p/s: sorry, i can't talk english properly.

    You could also try to hold the 's' key on the keyboard after you hear the boot up sound. When you're able to type in commands, type in: fsck
    (or try this link: http://support.apple.com/kb/ts1417)
    Hope it helps! :)

    Not yet! spinnerlys is asking you to provide more info so we can tell if OS X is still there.

    What do you see in partition scheme?

    Glad you fixed it.

    To choose which OS to boot use the Alt/Option key (mouse button or Play on your Apple remote) at boot, or use the System Preferences/Control Panel to select which OS should be the default one to boot.
