    So I was going through Bootcamp to load in Vista, and somewhere along the line I screwed up the partition in the Vista installation and now everytime I restart my system, it boots to windows. I deleted the Bootcamp partition, and it still tries to load to windows that doesn't exist, so it prompts me to insert the system disk. I have to hold option down in order to boot into OSX, and it is the only partition that comes up.

    I will at another point do Bootcamp again, this is actually the third time I've done it only this time it didn't work, but I just want to get back to Leopard only.

    BTW, I'm on a MBP 15" 2.33 GHz running Leopard 10.5.5.

    Press cmd+opt+p+r on boot, it resets the PRAM which stores the default boot location

    Or if you are already in OS X then go to System Preferences - Startup Disk and select OS X in there.

    edit: And welcome to the forums :)
