    Please help I've only had my MBP a couple of weeks and I've just tried to install Windows 7 using bootcamp..

    When the Windows install started it said it needed to be formatted as NTFS or something so i clicked on the 32gb partition and clicked format, Windows then sucessfully installed.

    The problem is now I can't for the life of me get back to OSX.. I've tried holding down the Option key but it boots up Windows within seconds of me turning the MBP on..

    What do I have to do??

    Thanks for your help

    Have you installed the Boot camp software in Windows? When you do you will get a grey diamond icon in the system try (next to the clock) - you can right click on that and choose - Reboot to OS X or something similar.

    Are you holding down the option key before you hear the chime?
