When I turn on my Macbook Pro(13in mid 2010) It says it has nothing to boot into. and that I have to insert a software disc for it to boot into Mac OSX. But, when i turn it on old down the "alt" button the mac partition comes up. I click the arrow and it's fine. So can someone please help me solve this problem? This happened after I used parallels and installed Windows 7 pro.
Thank You,
Manveer

Boot into OS X by holding down the Alt (OPTION) key. Once in OS X, go to System Preferences, Startup Disk, and select your MacIntosh HD as the default.
