    Hi there I´ve encountered a problem and hope somebody coould help me

    I currently own a macbook pro with intel cpu and running mac os and windows by boot camp. The thing is i got a water spill on my keyboard and it isn´t working anymore. I´ve ordered a new keyboard for the laptop however i live in Brasil and it´s still a little dificult to get parts around here. I currently have the windows booting up and can´t change the boot to mac os cause the option button doesn´t work. I´ve tried an usb keyboard but it seems like the computer only recognizes the keyboard after the boot up.

    If anyone has any idea on helping me at least boot up back on mac os I would really apreciate cause I hate having to work with windows. Thanks

    When you boot up into windows open the bootcamp control panel and you can change the boot order from there... just click on the osx partition and click restart and it should boot in osx without a problem.

    hope that helped
