    Hello all,

    I just ordered the BT keyboard from the Apple store and something occurred to me: can you press "option" when starting up to select the Windows partition or
    do you need a wired KB for that.

    Knowing that apple provides the option to get the wireless keyboard when you order the iMac, it should work fine. But I just want to be sure.

    Thanks a lot!

    It might not work the first time you boot (during which you have to set up the keyboard) but after it should be fine.

    You can also use the Apple remote to get the dual boot screen by holding down the play button while booting.

    Or you can just select to boot into windows from Sys Prefs -> Startup Disk
