    How do you change the boot order of windows 7 on a bootcamp partition?

    My W7 is looking for the DVD each time i boot into windows which adds a good minute to the boot time. Its a bit annoying.

    I know normally this is done in the bios but that is emulated in this scenario right?

    Any advice would be great!

    Windows had something called BCD that it uses there is a utility called BCDedit that makes it easy to tweak.

    This of course assumes that it's windows and not the Mac firmware looking for the DVD. What is your Startup disk set to in System preferences?
