    I suppose this is were I should ask this question. Anyway, yesterday my mac pro automatically booted into Windows (via boot camp). I've not booted into boot camp for over a year and only occasionally go into Windows via Parallels. I've gone into both Control Panel (Windows) and System Preferences and changed the startup to Macintosh HD, but its still booting me into Windows, initially. If I go into the Windows Control Panel, select Macintosh HD under Startup, it will reboot into Mac OS X, but once I shut down, its back into Windows again when I boot up. Any ideas on how to permanently fix this (other than removing Windows).

    Never heard of this problem. I just choose startup disk in Control Panel or System Preferences, and that made whichever partition I chose the main boot partition from there on out.

    This sounds like one of those times that zapping the PRAM might help.
