    Turn the computer on. As soon as you see the gray screen, hold the option key.

    As soon as you hear the startup sound, hold down the option key. Two HD's will then pop up, and you can use the arrow keys to select which one you want (I assume in your case you want the OSX partition). Select it, then press enter.

    You can also go into the bootcamp setting in windows and make the change.
