    Hi there,

    My MacBook contain BootCamp with Mac OSX and Linux, however, the Mac OSX doesn't work on last week, fortunately, I still have Mac OSX DVD disk, so how to install it to override existing Mac OSX partition, I saw some solution from Internet, but I am not sure it works or not:

    1 Press c key and power on the MacBook (boot from DVD drive)
    2 Insert Mac OSX Disk on MacBook DVD drive
    3 Choose Macintosh Disk and then override it.

    That's it!

    Should I reinstall BootCamp and the Linux or not? Pls advice, thanks

    Patrick

    Reverse steps 1 and 2 and it will work. If you just re-inststall on top you shouldn’t need to reinstall boot camp unless you destroy the various partitions via re-formatting.
