    Boot Camp and Windows Vista
    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.

    Specs:
    MBP C2D, 1 GB ram, 120GB HD
    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.
    Be patient.

    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?)
