    Hello :apple:
    So i was on bootcamp windows xp.
    So it gives the instal update pop-up .
    Most times im clicking later.
    But now i tought yeah well , ok then.
    So after installing that and restarting.
    It said : Windows isnt closed correctly .
    I had like 4 options
    1. Start windows ( pressed it first then it kept restarting after seeing the loading screen for like 2 secs )
    2. ? ( dont know what it was didnt try )
    3. Safe mode with internet ( didnt try )
    4. Safe mode

    So i tried the 4th one after trying the 1st one.
    It loaded .. and just worked but i didnt had internet and i didnt had rights to switch to MAC osx again. So i restarted again .
    But then it gives just the opening from bootcamp ( mac sound no apple logo )
    it goes to black screen i just see a few _ flashing
    and then it just goes black. Waited a few minutes nothing happened.
    cant press any buttons. theres still a cd in it wont come out .
    WHAT TO DO ? :eek:!:(

    Hello.

    Try holding down Option after you power on your Mac. That'll take you to the boot drive selection screen. Choose the partition with Mac OS X on it. That'll get you back to the Mac side. To make it stay as Mac OS X, you'll have to set the startup disk in, oddly enough, the Startup Disk System Preferences preference pane.

    It's the key next to Command, marked Option/Alt (or just Option, or just Alt, or something like that, depending on your keyboard).

    Huh? Given the problem you're having, it shouldn't auto-set itself to Mac OS X boot, unless the Windows partition is seriously corrupted.
