I just installed Windows 7 on my iMac and everything works fine.

But bootcamp have made the Windows partition my primary so every time I start it boots into windows. I have to hold down the option key to get into OS X.

I want that to be the other way around. How do I change the partition boot priority in OS X?

System Preferences - Startup Disk

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

The startup disk dialog is available in windows as well. Once you are in windows and you have the apple drivers/programs installed - there is a black diamond in the system tray. Double click - and you can set the startup disk there too. (Along with enabling right click and other useful stuff)

Yeah, the problem is that after I go to System Preferences - Startup Disk I only get theese two choices:

Mac OSX, 10.5.8 on OSX and Networkstart

No windows...

But isn't Mac OSX 10.5.8 the one you want to startup? So if you select Mac OSX you still boot into windows? If not then that should be what you wanted no? Start Mac - and hold option when you boot to get to windows.
