Hi I used to run mac osx 10.7 dual booting with ubuntu 13.04. I used to press alt at startup to view the different partitions and select the appropriate OS. After upgrading to 10.9 I can no longer see the ubuntu partition when pressing alt. The disk is still there intact, but there is no way I can directly boot to it from startup. I tried creating another partition using disk utility and installing a fresh copy of linux and using the old linux partition as backup but whenever I select the ex-fat (or any other type for that matter) (for linux) I get:
File system resize support required, such as HFS+ with Journaling enabled.
I erased osx 10.9 and reset to factory settings back to 10.8 but the same problem continues.
I am not sure what to do to get dual booting working again. I do have an ubuntu backup on an external drive, but I would prefer not reformatting that partition.

I don't know why you couldn't repartition the disk using Disk Utility. You would have to provide more information about why you can't.
As for OPTION booting Ubuntu I'm not sure how that worked. Typically Ubuntu installs the GRUB bootloader/manager that provides a text menu from which you select which OS to start. GRUB replaces the OS X boot manager.
