Can I Default to "Startup Disk Screen" on bootup?

    Hi there

    I have iMac running snow-leopard. Have a partition with MacOS and another with Win 7 via Bootcamp.

    I am getting annoyed at having to press the option key at startup, to choose the system to boot (often get distracted and press OPTION too late!).

    I wondered if I could default so that the STARTUP DISK CHOOSE screen comes up every time?

    You have two options I am aware of.

    Install rEFIt, a third party bootloader that give you more customization ability.

    Leave the deafult at OS X and use BootChamp to boot windows when you want to.
