    Hey guys not sure if someone has encountered this weird problem, after installing Windows using Bootcamp I get a logon screen that says "Update Needed" as the username, not sure what's the password but nothing works, seems like it's asking for a password before I can boot, just like the boot pass from windows.

    I can boot to Windows or OS X using the Option key but this is just annoying...

    Searched Google and some fixed it by disabling FileVault but I haven't encrypted anything...

    I remember now that I installed Windows on my internal HDD used for Time Machine backups, now decrypting...

    Hopefully this fixes it...

    After uninstalling Bootcamp partition inside OS X I don't get the "boot login", unencrypted the Time Machine HDD, tried the bootcamp install again on a partition and still got the boot login.

    Things that work:
    • Using target Disk mode inside windows to load os x directly
    • Pressing Options during boot
    Which is annoying...

    After figuring the boot login password I noticed it takes me to Recovery mode! but why!?

    any help is appreciated :(

    here's the log:

    I'm such a noob, I just needed to select the default boot device inside Bootcamp's Control Panel using Windows...
