Booting with Boot Camp
6 months ago

I have installed Boot Camp on my MacBook Pro along with Windows (8). Once I solved the problem of why Boot Camp would not partition my disc the installation went very smoothly and now I can boot to either Windows or OS X by setting the boot OS. In Windows this setting is in the Control Panel and, I assume, in OS X this is probably somewhere in the Boot Camp Assistant.

The question is whether or not there is some way to tell a booting machine where to boot to. That is, is there some key sequence I can enter during the boot process to bring up a window to tell the boot process which OS to boot into? Or is there some keystroke to use to when powering the machine up to tell it which OS to boot into?

Or is the only way for me to boot to the "other" OS to first boot to the default OS, change the setting and then reboot?

Thanks for any help.
