Windows 7 on Mac
I have uploaded 64 bit Windows 7 on my iMAC using Bootcamp. The installation happened succesfully but now whenever i switch on my MAC it automatically logs onto Windows. It does not show me any option to etither log into windows or MAC OSx.

I want to keep OSx as my master OS and use windows only when necessary.

Please help me on how to log into Leopard now.

When you turn on your Mac from a shutdown hold down the "alt" key just after you hear the startup chime, this will then give you the option to boot into OS X or Windows 7

Hope this helps

In system preferences > startup disk you can choose which partition (either osx or windows) to start up as default, so you don't have to hold down the option key every time you reboot.

The same Control Panel is available in Windows as well. Choose your default startup disk and reboot.
