    Hi I have a Mac Pro running Snow Leopard 10.6.8 with all system updates installed on my primary drive (Bay 1), as well as Windows 7 running on a Bootcamp partition on a second hard drive (Bay 2).

    I can't remember exactly when this began occurring, but at some point my Bootcamp drive has disappeared from the available boot drives in Mac OS X when viewing Startup Disk in System Preferences.

    However both the Bootcamp drive and Mac OS X drive appears in Windows

    Currently this means that I am required to used the option key to go into startup manager and select my Bootcamp drive.

    Is there a way to add my Windows drive back to the list of available drives in Startup Disk in Mac OS X?

    Thanks. :)

    Issue fixed, looks like a third party NTFS driver was to blame, I simply disabled it for the Bootcamp drive and things are are they should be. :D
