Mac wont Boot but BootCamp still works

Update:11-30Source: network consolidation

upon restarting from windows to mac, my mac won't boot up to the login screen (it showed the Apple Logo stuck with a blue screen). I was told to reinstall my os which i did.
I restored my mac using back up (time machine). Which took me 7 hours. And after the restoration was completed, I was prompted to restart my computer. However, upon restart, i was welcomed by a big power button asking me to restart my computer again. I restarted my laptop and still am being asked to restart it again.
My windows works perfectly, however i cannot boot into mac.
Please help!!!
