Hey everyone. I've just installed Windows XP with Boot camp. Now whenever I boot up my computer, whether or not I shut it down in OSX or XP, if I don't hold down the option key, it will always boot up in XP. Yeah, it's stupid, but I plan to use XP very little and would like my mac to boot up like a mac! I'm a little new and I don't speak Windows very well, any help?

Try going to System Preferences-Startup Disk and select OSX there.
Next time you restart, it should boot to OSX.

When all else fails, try everything!
