Hi all,

I have windows running on bootcamp. One of the annoying things about it is that I have to hold down the alt key when my imac starts up. Is there a way to make my imac automatically go to that start up disk selection so that I don't have to hold the alt key to go to it?
QUOTE Thanks

Boot to OS X. Go to System Preferences, Startup Disk and choose which OS you want to start automatically when the machine boots. You can also do the same thing from Windows by opening Control Panel and choosing Boot Camp. You'll find the same startup option there.
