    You hold down the alt-button upon start.

    Also, iOS is the name os the operating system for iPad and iPhone. OSX is the name you are looking for, which is the name for the Mac system.

    Unless you have really heavy lifting to do in the Windows section, you don't have to choose. You can run Windows in a Cage(I mean a window). You can pay for this privilege using either Parallels or Virtual VM, or you can download the free Oracle Virtual Box(which I did), and use that easily.

    You can load any other system like linux or commodore or amiga or next or even the first mac system into it also, although I've heard of people who did that, I don't actually know anybody.

    It seemed like an interesting thread. Are you a moderator?

    Besides your post being sort of unrelated to the initial thread I feel so free to post anything whenever I want. No mod rights necessary.:rolleyes:
