Thread: Bootcamp might have destroyed my iMac!

  1. #1
    Default Bootcamp might have destroyed my iMac!
    hey,

    well I decided to install windows on my iMac aluminum 20" VIA bootcamp - so i followed the on screen instructions....and well.....after the windows installation, my Mac Os X Leopard was gone!

    and now I can't even boot from the install disc's that came with the mac!

    I know there is a method of holding down the "c" to force it to boot from the disc, but that didn't even work! - spent about 2 hours trying to boot from tiger discs, and my leopard disc. Very frustrating.

    Any idea's one what I can doo?

    How big did you set your Windows partition? Try going to control panel in Windows and if I remember correctly, there should be an icon for Bootcamp where you can set which partition to boot off of on next reboot.

    Also if you hold the option key while booting, it will come up and ask which OS you want to boot from.

    Don't forget to hold the "C" or "command" key after the audible sound while booting and hold it till the apple logo comes up.

    Hope that works for you.
    Don't forget the Thanks if I helped
