    Hey guys,

    I was looking for some help. I just installed windows 7. I used the bootcamp drives from my osx snow leaport cd. Everything looks great and runs smoothly. What is weird though, is when i turn off my computer it automatically boots to windows. Is there any way to change this? I tried holding down the option key but its not letting me choose which hdd to boot from. Thanks!

    Yep boot up into snow leopard using the alt key when turning on and go into system preferences-Start up disk and select mac os x this will default the start up back to mac rather than windows.

    right click the bootcamp icon (black diamond) in the task icons next to clock in windows 7. there you can find options to select boot back to osx.

    holding option key should work too. you need to get the timing right tho, when the screen turns grey press it.
