Hi all,

Wonder if someone can help me, Ive just installed bootcamp with windows XP
when I switch my machine on it defaults to windows mega annoying! How do I make it default to the OSX start up rather than having to stand there and hold ALT every time I switch my machine on.

Cheers

Craig

Turn the computer on, hold the option key down and choose the partition to boot. If you boot into Windows, you can set the default startup disk in Control Panel => Boot Camp. If you boot into Mac OS X, go to System Preferences => Startup Disk.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
