    Hi everyone... bootcamp works great, have parallels installed, but everytime I turn on my computer or restart, the computer defaults to the windows partition.

    I know you can hold down the option key, but I hate doing that everytime. I thought it was always supposed to default to the Mac?

    Its been covered mate, go to 'System Preferences' and click on 'Startup disk', then choose the one you want.

    Even I, the selfproclaimed noob knew that...

    Now that Im at it, can you answer a question of mine?

    I want to partition more space to Windows but it seems I cant do that., now I just want to uninstall Windows but it gives me this incomprehesible message:

    Back up the disk and use Disk Utility to format the disk as a single Mac OS Extended (Journaled) volume. Restore your information to the disk and try using Boot Camp Assistant again.

    So it seems im stuck, any help mate?

    Thanks heaps
