    Hi. I have a2009 (5,1 Flash) 6-Core cMP. I have OSX on a Sandisk 120GB SSD in Bay 1, Windows 10 on a Sandisk 120GB SSD in Bay 2. A 1TB HDD in Bay 3 and the original shipping 640GB HDD in Bay 4.

    In OSX, I cam use BootChamp to boot into my Windows 10 installation. But in Windows 10 (Also tried Windows 8), when I click on the "Restart to OSX" option in the taskbar, it only reboots to Windows.

    To get back to OSX, I have to boot holding the Option key and select my OSX drive.

    Anyone have a fix for this?

    If you use BootChamp, it will cause your computer to reboot in to Windows once. The following reboots will boot in to OS X.

    For multiple HDD / partition. That "reboot to OSX" may not work well.

    Better to open the bootcamp apps, select the OSX partition manually, and then click the restart button at there. This will cost you extra 30s, but always work (unless the selected partition is bad).

    I have my OS X boot drive selected in System Preferences/Startup Disk. I have 5 drives in my tower. BootChamp can help me boot in to Windows once. The following reboots go right back to the selected startup drive.

    There is suppose to be native keyboard "X" will (try?) to boot into OS X (guess only if there is one?) - can be used in a pinch as when there is no boot screen also.
