    I know what you are thinking... hold down option. Yeah, that does not work. I just started using my iMac after a bit of time and now it only wants to boot to Windows. When I hold down Option at bootup, all that happens is the grey screen is there longer, then it will just go straight to Windows. I've tried both option keys and even Command + R but I still end up peanuts. :mad:

    This is just one of the many problems I am facing with my 3 machines :(

    Thanks for any kind of help.

    Try a different keyboard, make sure it's USB, not bluetooth.

    Always worth remembering this..With an Apple BT KB, I can't even get a PRAM re-set to work...With a wired KB of any kind, it works first time. My Logitech wireless also works, but has a USB dongle which may account for it. On the whole though, wireless KB's won't help you out when you need to access the boot screen.:)
