    when I start my macbook If I don't hold the options key it goes staright to an apple than circle with line through it. If i hold options key I get two hard drives one that says just hard drive one that says windows. windows seems to work fine other than the missing drivers for the Ethernet, wireless airport, and a few others. I have tried everything. I for some reason can not get to the mac side. it doesn't even show up and nothing relating to boot camp shows up. I split the partitions 35G to windows the rest to "mac" side. i would be just as happy with installing the drivers if I could get them installed I know very little about Mac's and should have left well enough alone. can anyone help?
    Thanks in advance,
    Rob

    This is an issue with Mac OS X. You have to reinstall the OS.

    As everything can be anything: Mac doesn't boot

    Did that help in any way? Can you boot from your restore DVD and run Disk Utility and see if the Mac OS X partition is recognized and maybe even needs a repair?

    Btw, as I assume you have Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard, released late August 2009), re-installing Mac OS X (like celticpride678 suggested) will not delete your data, unless you choose to.
