    A colleague of mine was informed to get Office running on a Mac he had to do it through windows (great customer service), so the guy set up bootcamp on his Macbook Air and an install of Windows and a trial of Office (what a mess).

    Removed this, he bought Office for the Mac, so I want to get rid of all the Bootcamp nonsense.

    Anyway, I went in to Bootcamp Assistant, checked the box to remove the windows partition, showed me the end result, job done, I thought.

    Rebooted and you still get that Bootcamp startup option, to select to boot into OSX (obviously no windows option) and a few other options.

    I purely want it to show up the login option screen and not show this.

    Is this possible after setting up Bootcamp initially?

    Normally there is no boot selection screen visible when using Boot Camp and Windows, unless one holds down the OPTION key.

    Can it be, that your colleague installed some boot manager like rEFIt? What happens, if you go to System Preferences > Startup Disk* and select the Mac OS X partition? Does the boot selection screen still show up?

    If so, what exact options are visible? And could you make a photo with your cell or camera and attach it to your next post?
