How do I switch between Windows 7 and Mac OSX?
 
Hi, I'm going to install Windows 7 on my Mac soon. I am just wondering how do I choose the OS when I turn on my Mac. Will it give me am option at the beginning? Thanks

No. You'll press and hold the Option key at boot time to toggle between the two.

Be sure to print and read the Boot Camp User Guide, which you'll be prompted to view at the first step. It will literally save you hours of time and frustration.

I'm sorry about that. I am new and wasn't sure

Another way is to purchase Parallels 6 and you can swap directly from Mac to Windows without the need to reboot.
