I just got my Macbook Pro & I'm running Windows 7 and OS X Lion on it. I'm currently on the mac side and don't know how to get back to the windows side. I don't have any trouble going from windows to mac, but I now need to get back, because I don't have Office for mac installed & I was working on a project. Can anyone please tell me a step by step process on how to get back? I'm still learning how to use the mac and would appreciate all the help I can get! Thanks!

Go into System Preferences > Startup Disk and select Windows there and click restart. Otherwise boot and hold down the Option key and you will have the choice of Lion, Lion Recovery Disk and Windows 7. Just click on what you wish to boot from. If you want your MBP to boot into Lion by default, go into Startup Disk and highlight the Lion OS X.7.2 disk.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
