    HELP NEEDED - stuck in Windows with no Bootcamp icon
    Hi all, the Windows side of my iMac has suffered a total failure (presumably during an overnight update). I can boot in Safe Mode but nothing else and I need to get back to the Mac side where all my work/emails/accounts are.

    Question is, with no Bootcamp icon in the systray in Safe Mode.....

    ......How do I get back over to Mac???

    At this time I really don't want to reformat the Windows partition.

    thanks for any assistance!!

    Reboot while holding the option key down until you get the boot menu.
    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.
