    Try holding down the "opt" key on startup. You should get to select your OS-X volume.

    Well, I guess I was assuming you had an Apple keyboard. My bad... ;)

    Anyway, the "alt" key should function as "opt".

    Glad that was it! Sometimes, it's hard to picture what's going on from here. I have this virtual display in my head, if you know what I mean. :D
