Bootcamp Mac OS X Windows 8 Recover Operating System not Found

windowsrecoverbootcamp

I recently had a trouble when I try to bootcamp Windows 8 into Mac OSx, I tried to upgrade my Windows 7 bootcamp immediately to Windows 8 without thinking that the latest Bootcamp drivers does not support yet Windows 8 drivers, so there it is. I cannot boot back to Mac OS X. So I tried to downgrade the OS with no success (Windows 7 installer does not work), and anything else.

Until I decided to reformat the Bootcamp drive (still under Windows 8 Bootcamp) and taught that I can boot into the Windows 7 OS installer but instead produced an error in the installation, so I was there stuck and left with the message ” An operating system wasn’t found. try disconnecting any drivers that don’t contain an operating system” under the black screen prompt. I cannot boot any disk, usb, cd drive.

So the only solution is to use the Mac OS X installation CD if you have one.  So here the instructions

1.Insert Mac OS installation CD during boot – note: Hold on C on keyboard to boot into disk, until you can see an Apple Logo loading which is a good sign noh :). The choose the language (don’t worry , we are not gonna reinstall the Mac OS X)

2. After selecting the language,  select utilities , then select “Startup Disk”

3. The select the Mac OS X as the startup disk, then press restart, after that your Mac will boot to the Mac OS X instead of the Windows boot.windows 8 recover bootcamp 3

That is it, you can now recreate the bootcamp if you reformatted it accidentally. Please comment below if you have any questions.
