Mac OS no longer available after trying to remove Windows on Bootcamp. How can I restore Mac OS without the Mac HDD in options?

Mac OS no longer available after trying to remove Windows on Bootcamp. How can I restore Mac OS without the Mac HDD in options?
So what I did was, I had bought my iMac from a shop and asked them to do bootcamp for me. However, they installed 32 bit instead of 64. My fault, I did not make my self clear about it. So after it has been delivered to my house, I realized that I wanted the 64 bit. I tried to remove windows on bootcamp but honestly, I have not experienced this before. So I failed. I believe, I did something wrong.
So I opened the iMac and it keeps asking me to go to windows. Windows OS also corrupted.
I tried the Option Key but the only option is Windows 7 only. So using a different keyboard, I press option and it only shows Windows HDD and the Mac HDD has gone.
What am I going to do? How can I restore Mac OS without the HDD anymore?

iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.2)   < your profile
Try using Lion Recovery

  • How can I download new software without the mac app store

    I have tried to obtain new software since lion came out and have not been able to do so because I do not have the mac app store on my mac book pro. There is no hard copy of the new software so I find myself pretty much stuck.  Is there anyway i can get around this?

    You need 10.6.8 or later to access the App Store. Start with:
    Snow Leopard General requirements
    Mac computer with an Intel processor
    1GB of memory
    5GB of available disk space
    DVD drive for installation
    Some features require a compatible Internet service provider; fees may apply.
    Some features require Apple’s MobileMe service; fees and terms apply.
    If you need Snow Leopard you can still purchase a copy from Apple's online store's telesales agents.[1-800-MY-APPLE (1-800-692-7753) or Customer Service and Sales Support at 1-800-676-2775.] Ask for a Sales Representative.
    Third-party sources for Snow Leopard are:

  • How can i use microsoft office on the mAC - what app do i purchase? help?!!

    how can i use microsoft office on the mAC - what app do i purchase? help?!!

    What aspect of Microsoft Office? Office is a suite of programs... Word, Excel, Powerpoint, etc.
    You've got several potential options. Libre Office and Open Office (both googleable) are 'open source,' free, downloadable programmes that will open most MS Office programmes and perform many of the functions of MS Office. Might be an idea to have a look round for reviews (etc) first, to see if they sound like they'll match your needs.
    If you're keen to use the App Store, there's Apple's own suite of programmes: Pages, Numbers and Keynote. They're a word processor, spreadsheet programme, and presentation-type programme with similar functions to Word, Excel and Powerpoint respectively. They're pretty good for most functions, and are better integrated with Macs than MS programmes. They're excellent programmes for what they do, and relatively cheap (about £14 each?).
    But if you're heavily reliant on MS, want ALL the bells and whistles of MS, or need to regularly transfer files between MS programmes on other computers and your laptop / desktop computer, then they might not be the best of ideas. Keynote - IME - can have some difficulties in transferring formatting to Powerpoint.
    Finally, there's MS Office Mac 2011. You can't download MS Office from the App Store, but can order the CDs from most online stores (including Apple's own store). It might be worth price hunting - if you're a student, you can usually find the programmes relatively cheap (£38 at the moment on Software4Students, though you'll need to belong to an academic institution / have a UK .ac email address). Apple's own prices on MS software are unlikely to be the best prices out there (though the product will be identical).
    MS Office includes Word, Excel and Powerpoint in the basic version. The slightly more expensive version (which, I think, is the £38 one on S4S) includes Outlook. Which - IME - is far more of a nuisance than Apple's native Mail programme.
    (I should probably add - I'm an academic. I own both Apple's own programmes, and MS Office 2011. I tend to use the MS programmes more, if only because they're the ones that other people tend to use, and transferring between Apple and MS programmes is a minor inconvenience. Pages also lacks Garamond, my favourite work font. The Apple progs are, however, far more beautifully integrated, and would be MORE than good enough for most users...)

    My iphone 4 is in recovery mode after trying to install update 7.1.1.  How can I get out of this with out having to do a restore?

    You don't. You have no choice but to restore at this point. The update did not complete successfully. iOS needs to be restored using iTunes.

  • How can i gift an app in the mac app store ?

    hi,, I see that i can gift an app in the ios store, but cannot do the same in the mac app store ? ... is this feature not available yet ?. if not, when will it be available ?

    You can use iTunes gift cards in the App Store. I don't think Apple supports "gifting" of apps as yet and we wouldn't know when they may do this in the future. This is a user to user forum, not Apple.

  • How can I connect multiple speakers to the Mac Mini?

    Just received and setup up my new Mac Mini (Dual-Core i7, 8GB memory, 750GB disk) with OS Lion.  Still in newbie phase.  I have a set of 3-way Boston Acoustic speakers (w/ subwoofer) from an old Gateway computer.  Is there any way/adapter available to connect them to the Mac Mini in order to improve music played within iTunes.  Appreciate your responses.

  • How can I delete a app from the Mac App Store completely?

    I have a apllication which had a error. I delete it and download the app from the Mac App Store again, but the error wasn't delete. My iMac had stored it and the Error wasn't deleted so I can't youse the app.
    What can I do to delete the app complete?
    Please answer.

    If your App was faulty in some way you should write to iTunes support.   If you simply want to delete it, most Apps carry uninstall (not delete) instructions.
    Incidentally, I believe you cannot delete the record of your purchase from iTunes.   That will always stay on your purchases list and be marked with a dark grey square as INSTALL..

  • I have a mac book pro with Boot Camp that also runs windows.  I upgraded to Lion and somehow it crashes the mac side peridoically.  I am told I need to "clean" it and reinstall lion using the recovery drive.  will that delete the windows partition too??

    I have a mac book pro with Boot Camp that also runs windows.  I upgraded to Lion and now the mac side crashes/freezes periodically, especially iphoto.  I am told by the genius' that I probably need to "clean" it and reinstall lion using the "recovery drive" which resets everything back to default and reinstalls the lion operating system.  My question is will this also delete the "windows" partition drive and all that data too.  If so that will be a huge pain in the ___ to back up and reinstall boot camp and windows. I want to shoot the lion.

    There is no system like Acronis for the Mac platform. You can try using the buiilt in Disk Utility to create an Image of the complete Mac drive but I have found that this does not work very well as on tryiing to restore it gives errors sometimes.
    You can use SuperDuper or Carbon Copy Cloner to create a bootable Clone of your system partition. But that is only for the System partition and not the complete drive.
    If you use Boot Camp to install Windows on your Mac neither of those two programs will clone the Windows side.
    Neither will Disk utility as Mac's can not create or write to a NTFS partition. So some other program is need for that.

  • How can i change when i start the mac book pro, between mac and win?

    when i start the mac book pro, between mac and win?

    If you want to set which OS your system boots into (provided Windows is installed using BootCamp and not a virtualization option such as Parallels, Fusion, or VirtualBox), just hold the "Option" key down when you turn your computer on.  Continue to hold the key down until you see the options for booting into the OS of your choice.  Just click on the arrow under the one you wish (tap to click won't work here if you have it enabled... you'll need to physically click the trackpad).  If you want to change which OS your system normally boots into, just go into System Preferences in OS X and select "Starup Disk".  Whichever OS you select here will be the OS your system will automatically boot into.

  • How can we shut off messaging on the Mac book pro?

    I have just purchased a Mac Book Pro for one of my kids. We have iPads and iPhones etc in the household. With his new laptop the messaging feature means that whenever anyone face times or messages a different family member, he also gets that on his laptop. How can we prevent this?
