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.
