    So I was trying to fix the fact that my macbook takes about 2 minutes to shut down. I heard that getting rid of my partition of Vista (that I don't use). So I used boot camp, logged into my windows account. And bam. I'm stuck because my activation ran out. So it won't let me past the activation screen. I don't WANT to activate it. I want to delete the partition, but I can't log back into OSX to delete it.

    Is there a way I can boot into OSX without using the boot camp utility on my status bar of windows vista?

    Thanks everyone! (first post btw)

    Reboot Vista and hold down the ALT key. This will bring up the option to boot into whatever OS you want - select OSX and you're good to go.

    Good luck!

    When you power on your MacBook, hold down the Option key until two icons appear on your screen - one will be OS X and one will be Boot Camp. Select the OS X icon and hit enter.
