I want my iMac to boot to OSX instead of defaulting to Windows 7. How do I change that?

The only way I know to get it to go to OSX is by holding down the option key, otherwise it automatically goes to Windows 7.

Also you can go to System Prefrences>Startup Disk

Then just choose the OSX portion of the Hard drive and you're good to go.

Don't forget the +reputation button on the left!
