    Okay this is weird, I had this issue a while ago but it never came to this.

    I have bootcamp and want to change OS, so I restart while holding option key and here are 2 outcomes:
    1. The screen stays grey and mac is just standing like this, I waited for 5 minutes but no options came out.

    2. If I hold option immediately while Mac is restarting screen stays black and sleep button is lid up all the time, nothing happens.


    Anyone knows how to solve this issue?

    Do you have anything at all plugged in besides the magsafe?

    thats weird. maybe try doing it with the OSX disc in and go to system utilities to see if they windows partition is corrupt. but you may not even be able to do that if you option button at boot isnt pulling up the boot menu

    Only the mouse is plugged in, but hey it worked before even with the mouse. So I have no idea what is causing it now.
