    So i removed window's 7 beta with the boot camp remover, but whenever i boot up, my MBP still tries to boot into windows, and then gives me a "No bootable disk found" error, and then i need to restart and remember to hold down the option key, and select the Mac partition, even though it is the only one available. Any file that i need to delete so it doesn't keep trying to boot into Windows?

    Hold down Option while you boot to bring up the built-in boot loader. Then select the hard drive you have OS X on and you will be set.

    After he's booted back to Mac OS X go to System Preferences and choose Startup Disk. Then highlight the Mac OS X HDD and it will boot up to Mac OS X automatically.
