So I installed Windows (through bootcamp) a few weeks ago to test play a game. After installing Windows it set Windows to boot as the primary OS (if you did not hit Option, it would boot to Windows). After two weeks, I deleted Windows and its partition through bootcamp.

Now everytime it tries to boot up, it still tries to boot to Windows, and clearly throws an error. How do I set Mac OS X as the primary OS now? I no longer have the option through bootcamp.

Thanks

System Preferences - Startup Disk

Pick the one you want and click on Restart

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
