    System Preferences > System > Startup Disk

    Select Macintosh HD (or whatever it is).

    Wish I could help you on the bootcamp problem. It works fine for me but it was already installed when I bought my computer.

    Out of curiosity, can you at least view what's in the bootcamp partition after your in OSX?

    If you can, it installed the OS but didnt make it bootable for some reason.
