    Uninstalling GRUB from MacBook Air up vote 0 down vote favorite So... I have a MacBoo

    So... I have a MacBook Air and I recently tried to install Ubuntu on my external HD. I booted Ubuntu from a flash drive and everything had gone fine. I turned off my computer and when I turned it on again I got a message of error and a "grub rescue" line to enter some code. I rebooted holding the "option" key and I selected the Mac partition and everything is fine with my system, but every time I start my system and I don't hold the "option" key, I get the same error and the grub rescue message. I just want things to go back to normal, as they were before I installed Ubuntu on my external HD (which, btw, presented a message that said there was no boot loader). What do I do?

    When you're booted under OS X, go to System Preferences ==> Startup Disk and click on your internal disk. At the next reboot, you should be good. I've seen the same behavior with my macs, and I consider it a bug in Ubuntu. When I say "no bootloader" at installation, I want the installer to leave my frigging disk alone and not install something to the bootloader section behind my back.

    Only one question... If I formatted the HD, would it resolve?
