Hi Guys,

I installed windows via bootcamp last night trying something, I got rid off the partition via the bootcamp as I no longer needed it.

For some reason my iMac attempts to boot windows, as I see the "-" at the top left of the screen but the partition isn't there anymore?! :S

I can click the "option" key and it then does boot Mac OS X, but it's just I shouldn't have to do that should I?!

This also is the same problem on my MacBook Pro?

Thanks in advanced!
