Hi

Is there anyway on startup to always be asked which to boot in, OSX or windows XP??

I know if i hold down Alt then it works but i mean without having to hold Atl down.

Any help Very appreciated.

Thanks

Okay, follow these steps:

1. Get some tape.

2. Tape down the Alt key so that it stays pressed.

3. Turn on or Restart your computer.

If you followed those steps, you will be prompted upon startup to select an OS to load.


Hope this helps

There's an alternative boot manager you can install instead, but it seems a bit complicated TBH, especially just for this.

Use the remote instead: Hold down the menu key and the pick your OS...

Check out the rEFIt project.

I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.
