    Question Problem with switching from Mac to Windows
    Im new here so bear with me. This might also be in the wrong forum but whatever. I have had a Mac Mini for about a year and I have recently started to switch back and forth from mac to windows. I found that it worked pretty seamlessly for a while but then started to not work at all. When I turn on my mac and hold down the option key the Mac and Windows hard drives both show up. But when I click on the windows hard drive the screen goes gray (as it should) and then black and stays that way. After a while the system reboots itself to mac. Has anyone else had the same problem as me? I am wondering if anyone has any tips for me. Also I find when I don't try to switch for a while (like a couple days) when I try to, it works....!?!?! All help is appreciated.

    Try pressing F8 right after clicking the windows hard drive icon. Keep pressing it, not holding it down but rapidly and see if you get a menu.
