Boot Camp Startup Disk

Since I installed Boot Camp, I’ve been rather annoyed that my MacBook boots into Windows unless I hold down the Option key and choose the Mac OS X startup disk.

The other day I mentioned this while chatting with a friend who works at Apple. I believe his answer was something like, “Huh?”

Turns out this is easily fixed by going into the Startup Disk System Preference and choosing (or re-choosing) the Max OS X disk there. Sure enough, that solved the problem.

So just in case anyone else has been suffering through this and was too dense to figure it out – there you go. :)

Note: I initially installed Boot Camp 1.0 beta, this may be a moot point with later versions.
