Ok so here is my problem.

I have installed OsX on my pc via a dvd 10.4.6.

And I'm only having one problem here, i cant boot without the dvd...

Here is what happens, if I boot with no dvd in my drive all I get is a black screen with a blinking white line on the top. My Os X partition is active, i know cause I just had set it to active.

How do I fix this?

Oh and by the way the only way I can boot into windows is to set the windows partition to active and reboot with no dvd...


Please help me!

Hey dude,


This is what ya got to do,

Boot to windows and click Start > Run and then type ‘diskpart’ (without quotes)


Type in (press enter after you typed in a line):


list disk

select disk [the number of your disk]

list partition

select partition [the number of your osx partition]

active (if this doesn’t work, try ’set active’ without quotes)


This will fix your problem for sure. I had the exact same problem :D
