    As far as I understand there is a bug that stops Windows 7 or Vista from showing up in the Start Up disk options in the preference settings.

    So the only option is to go through the boot menu selection but unfortunately I am using the Apple wireless keyboard and holding the option key down doesn't bring up the boot selection screen. Is there anything I can do ... or am I forced to use a USB keyboard for now ?

    For the record I have the Wireless Keyboard and Mighty mouse paired and working in Windows 7 ( The keyboard has occasional lag from the first keystroke input but is fine from then ) Its just that I get no response from keystrokes during boot up.

    Hmmmm. When I had it, the wireless keyboard worked on the white screen after booting... Weird.

    In persona non grata
    Win 7 shows up fine for me in Start Up Disk Utility, no problems whatsoever in that regard.

    Now, if I could get the stupid WiFi to work......
