    QUick thread I have bootcamp and XP installed on my MB fine, thing is everytime I want to change which OS i boot from I have to do it through the start up disk Pane in either OS X or Windows XP...

    This is becuase Holding down the Apple (option) key on startup doesnt allow me to choose the disk...

    What gives am I doing somehting wrong???

    Thanks

    i'm sure there was a way to select the os with the apple remote as well ?

    hold it here it is ....


    Optional alt. At startup, hold down the option key (alt) to choose between Mac OS X and Windows.

    You can actually do it in Startup disk in System Preferences.

    You don't need boot camp to boot windows, you just need the latest firmware.

    but a little pointless without all the drivers boot camp provides, is it not?
