    I just installed Vista on my MBP via Boot Camp. I partitioned my drive and everything seemed to work fine BUT now when I shut down and restart the laptop it automatically boots back to Windows!!! I checked my partitions via disk management in Windows and there are two partitions. I'm positive that I picked the right partition for install when I installed Vista and didn't install over OS X. But when the machine starts up I don't see the Apple logo or here the musical tone at the beginning and it goes straight to Vista so I'm worried I somehow blew away my OS X install. Anybody have any ideas??

    When you boot the computer hold down the option key.You will get two disk icons.One for Windows and one for OS X.

    After installing Windows via bootcamp it will always start up in Windows until you change the startup disk either in Windows Control Panel or OS X's System Preferences.

    Nothing to worry about.
