    Interesting thing just happened today.
    I installed ntfs-3g so I could write to my ntfs partitions and found that when I next tried to set the startup disk to mircosotf the partition was gone. :eek:
    So I plugged in my eMac keyboard to use the option key start method and both disks were there but the bootcamp disk just hung. I have just now removed ntfs-3g and the partition is now back in the startup list so hopefully it's all back to normal.
    Has anyone else seen this? bit of a bummer IMO

    ok, so now I'm posting from win7 using ie so it's all ok.
    When win7 started it paused for quite some time then said to restart to use new device just found.
    So ntfs-3g changes the way the partition works even when uninstalled.
    Won't go down that road again.:confused:
