Hold down option and see if you get the normal boot select screen if it then allows you select OSX without issues it might just be trying to boot from a none functioning Windows partition.
I have found a few snow leopard machines which needed to have fixmbr run from the recovery console on a windows install CD after install before they would boot from the Windows partition.
