    Did you ever use bootcamp with XP?

    The way to switch back is to shut down, and then when starting up hold the option key (sometimes alt), and choosing OSX.

    it's not sometimes alt, it's always alt. Alt + Option are the same key, just one USA keyboard and the other European :)

    I said 'sometimes alt' as I thought that the OP may have read 'option key' and seen that there was nothing on his keyboard saying 'option', so I thought to try and save him some confusion if he had a keyboard which had a button called 'alt'

    i think on the MB the key has both "alt" and "option" written on the key. this is how it is on my MBP and my Apple BT keyboard.

    On my keyboard (in the UK), only alt is written...same on my grandad's iMac's keyboard.
