Bootcamp just installed, option key does nothing to boot into Windows 7

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I am trying to avoid reinstalling bootcamp, but yesterday i got my new iMac, installed bootcamp (all without a mouse) and after windows installed its updates and restarted it went directly into Mac OS.

I tried restarting and holding the option key to switch partitions but it did nothing, just went straight into Mac OS.

Any thing I can do other than re-installing it? Maybe a setting i dont know about or something?

Try installing Quickboot on the Mac side:

If it doesn't show up the Bootcamp partition as bootable, it's probably messed up. Check to see if you have MacFuse installed too with NTFS-3g, that can prevent the partition booting up and make sure that if you used any VMs like Parallels to boot the partition that you didn't leave them in a suspended state.
