Hey everyone,

Just a couple of questions I've got that i'm sure someone here will be able to answer.

1) Where/how do I tell my MBP which boot partition to default to at boot up? I recently deleted my windows partition and now everytime I turn on my mac I get a boot disk error. If I reboot and hold option down and select mac hdd all is well. How can I tell my mac to always select this partition and...

2) Is there a way to always be prompted at boot up to select which partition to boot in? Like an auto hold option down thing? So when you turn on the mac you are presented with the bootable hdd partitions everytime...

Thanks in advance,

2). Yes. rEFIt. Although if you re-set the startup disk correctly via the System Preferences, you won't need it as you only have the one partition anyway so what's to choose? :)
