Hi,
I'm running Yosemite main OS on a Imac 21" late 2013. The bootcamp partition works if i hold alt after restart, its a windows 7 ultimate 64 bit edition. But it doesn't recognise in target disk menu my bootcamp partition while i'm in Yosemite.
Can anybody give me a tip?

I think you are not getting replies because no one understands your question.

When you say "But it doesn't recognise in target disk menu my bootcamp partition while i'm in Yosemite." what do you mean?

Did you mean to say, "But it doesn't recognize my bootcamp partition in my startup disk preferences panel while i'm in Yosemite."?

Hi, Basically i want to see in this menu, my bootcamp partition. I can only see it by restarting my mac and holding the ALT key.

Depends on your Windows configuration. The Bootcamp partition does not always appear as an option while you are booted to OS X. I have two Macs here, both have boot camp partitions, running Win10. One, running Lion, does not show the Windows partition in Startup Disk.
The other Mac, running Sierra, does show the Windows partition.
Anyway, you do have to restart your Mac to boot to your bootcamp partition, so just hold the Option/Alt key, and choose the windows partition on that boot picker screen.
If you often boot to Windows, you could just leave it set as the default boot volume (so if you restart, or shut down, a reboot will automatically boot to your Windows system), and you would choose the Mac boot on the alt boot screen. Or, you would boot to Windows by default. It's your choice!
You have to set the default for the Windows partition while you are booted to Windows, then open your Boot Camp control panel, then the Startup Disk tab.
