My Mac formatted partition on my Macbook is corrupt so I am trying to boot from a disk in order to try and either repair the partition or to reinstall Mac OSX.


When I try and hold either alt or C nothing happens, it just attempts to boot as per usual with no visible change in the boot.


For information I have used the shortcuts before and they worked,

I am running OSX Lion,

I have a late 2011 MBP,

I am using the inbuilt keyboard (I have tried other keyboards),

If I hold alt it should give me the option to choose Lion Recovery, Bootcamp or Lion.



Thanks if anyone can help!

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7)
