So I bought a Mac 1,1 and it runs great, until I tried to bootcamp it the other day with an old windows HDD i had. I downloaded windows, and tried to bootcamp it and now it will not boot the Mac HDD, but if I hold option on boot the HDD shows up and then i can boot into it. I am on OSX Lion.


You probably killed the boot sector for the OS X.

Use the CMD-R to restore the OSX.

  • okay. will that affect the programs i currently have installed or will those be unaffected. – ryanjblajda Sep 23 '14 at 0:42
  • NOPE, it will only repair the OS X it self, no apps will be impacted. – Ruskes Sep 23 '14 at 0:45
  • also, bootcamp refuses to work with windows 7 32bit on a USB stick. any thoughts? – ryanjblajda Sep 23 '14 at 0:49
