    I have a 10gig Windose partition on my hard drive, and when ever I boot up my MB, it automatically chooses the Windows partition to boot into. Is there a way to change the default boot partition?

    In OSX, System Preferences->Startup disk, choose either Mac OSX or Network :)

    From Windows:
    Control Panel > Startup Disk > Select your Leopard/Tiger partition.

    From OS X:
    System Preferences > Startup Disk > Select your Leopard/Tiger partition.

    Windows is made the default partition during the Windows install so that Windows can reboot during the installation process and automatically get back to its partition and finish the installation.

    Why do you need to be like this? It was a simple question. Not to mention, when was the last time you got a decent or any manual with a computer purchase? Almost everything is on line. It seems it is just as hard for some of us to keep things like this to themselves.

    Not to mention, someone who might be new to macs might not know what to search on google, so they ask here, a Mac support and discussion community.
