    I have bootcamped with Vista but for some reason it is not showing up when I open up startup disk (so I can restart into it from OSX). Is there a way to make it show up?

    Or at least another way to switch into Windows without having to shut down, then start it up, hold options, etc.?

    Are you waiting until the spinning gear finishes spinning? It takes about 5-10 seconds for Startup Disk to detect bootable Windows installations.
