I booted up after I deleted the XP partition, and I got a folder with a flashing "?" . I know that this means that it can't find the startup disk or worse... the HD died. The BIG problem is that I have the Open firmware thingy enabled, or the EFI, I have the intel mac. This wont' let me use many if not all key combinations that force it to startup. How can I boot up from the disk or fix this problem? Any ideas?

Thank you.

Ok I got it fixed, all I had to do was to hold the alt key and voila!
