    New Mac Keyboard - Can't Dual Boot
    Hi guys,

    I bought a new slim metal Mac Keyboard with key pad today - not bluetooth but with a cord. I try to press the "option" button at startup and I can't get my computer now to dual boot. It just jumps into Mac O/S.

    If I plug in my old keyboard and press "options" it goes right in to dual boot???

    I have updated both Win XP & Mac O/S and made sure I have all the keyboard drivers installed - did they change the button on the new keyboard to something elses???? Ahhh... Please help...

    I just don't get it - I thought it was a hardware problem but I can use the Alt/Option key in applications so I know its working....

    What model Mac do you own? I know the Aluminum keyboard has issues with the option key on some Mac Mini's.
