    According to the instructions on Apple's website for bootcamp, I should be able to select an OS during boot by holding down the option(alt) key. However, I've tried this multiple times and my iMac just boots to whatever OS i shut it down from. Anyone else have this issue?

    It works OK for me - I press Alt as soon as the grey splash screen comes up, and hold it down until the mouse pointer appears.

    Otherwise, mine always seems to boot into Windows, no matter which OS I was on previously.
