Insert Bootable disc?

So the other day I tried to use boot camp to put windows on my macbook (I had to do it to install a program for exams). Anyway, everything well all right but in the end I had to remove the partition because my version of windows was too old. So, I partitioned it, installed windows, realized it wasn't service pack 2, then deleted windows and removed the partition.
My problem: whenever I boot up my machine it goes to a black screen and asks for me to insert a bootable disc (or something close to that, I can't remember exactly, but that's the gist). However, if I hold the option key down when I start up, it goes to the screen where I could select Mac OS (or when I had windows, I could select windows).
Now it seems to me my computer THINKS I have a partition still or it still wants to open windows but windows is not there.

5. Boot OS X again, Go into Applications/Utilities run the boot camp assistent
