    I payed $140 for a computer store to install windows and bootcamp and all that and he said hold options button and the boot menu will come up. I tried this and nothing happens then someone on here said i have to do it during the grey screen when the computer is starting up and still NOTHING HAPPENS. I'm assuming when I'm in windows mode it will look like it right? and it also asks if i want to restart with windows and i check yes and I'm still in OSX???????????????????????????????

    Normally if you start the machine and at the chime sound you press and hold the option (alt) key a boot menu will come up with the options of Macintosh HD, Recovery HD or Boot Camp if it's installed.
    Some people use a different boot manager (like rEFInd) and don't need to hold the alt key down to get the choice menu.
