    Hey guys,

    I`ve had no problems so far with this wonderful system.
    Windows XP64 running perfectly smooth ... a dream of a machine.

    Well until yesterday night when I came home wanting to check my mails.

    Bootcamp configured The booting the way that I have to press alt to start OSX otherwise Windows will start automatically. Since yesterday on the first turn on, the mac hanged on a white screen. Then I turned it off and on again ... then it worked.

    Just right now it happened again, this time it didnt even ask me to choose the harddrive to boot from when I pressed the alt key.
    I`m sure this is a software bug.

    Does anyone know how I can fix this. How can I change the boot order to OSX automatically starting and Windows starting with pressing the alt key ?

    Thank you in advance.

    Two ways to do that:

    Under OS X, go to System Preferences/Startup Disk and select Mac OS X as the boot disk, or under Windows, simply select the Boot Camp icon and have it reboot into OS X, and then the default boot will always be Leopard.
