    Boot Camp Problems
    Hey Guys,
    So I recently put Windows 7 64-bit on my MBP 13' 2011, using boot camp.
    The installation went smoothly, but now whenever I turn on my MBP, the default boot is windows. To use the Mac OSX, I have to use the "option" key during startup. How can I change this so that Mac OSX is the default boot?
    Thanks!

    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.

    Yup, I just BootCamped Win7 and in Windows there should be a BootCamp Assistant that loads in the Win7 tray that allows you to select the OS-X and hit a re-start icon and in 10 seconds your back on a MAC. When I'm on the MAC side I use the path bobtomay offered.

    I now have the best of both and couldn't be happier in my decision to buy my 27" iMAC

    Cheers

    My BC Win 7 partition behaves normally as well. You're looking for a small gray diamond in the Windows task bar. Click it and you will get the option of restarting in OSX. Until you do this, it will keep booting into Windows.
