Hi guys,

I have Vista and OS X running my new Macbook Pro.
No problems there.
I have two questions:
How can I force boot camp to load vista as default instead of os X?
How can I make boot camp give me the options that I get by holding the option/alt key without actually holding the key?

Thank you.

Be patient.
Still learning the mac stuff.
QUOTE Thanks

1) in either windows or X, open boot camp assistant and select vista to be the default OS.

2) i don't think u can do that.

Thank you.
That worked.
It's too bad, I really like to see the two hdd pictures showing on startup so I can select which one I want.

Apple provides a 26 or so page document that goes step-by-step with your Bootcamp download. Did you print this out and try it? (or is that the complex one for you?)
