    Whenever I start my Macbook on Leopard I have to acknowledge I want to start from my one and only hard drive. I have gone into preferences / startup and there are two selections my hard drive and network with a question mark.

    This started when I replaced my hard drive. How can I make it stop?

    Have you selected the internal drive in that option?

    If that doesn't work I would reset the PRAM by holding down cmd+opt+P+R at boot, this will clear the boot options and should revert it to just booting off the internal.

    so is it always booting up into the bluish/gray startup-disk mode?

    it you select the startup drive from the prefs and restart properly the PRAM should remember next time.

    Maybe see if the disk needs repair and try resetting your PRAM. With only one drive, the computer should not be having a problem finding the boot volume.

    I have tried resetting the PRAM and selecting the drive in prefs. I have gone through the disk repair. And still always start to the white and gray start up and have to select my one and only drive to continue? Thanks for your help, got anything else?
