    Just two questions would really help me out during the set-up. 1- When the Windows side restarts, if i don't hold down the option key, it automatically restarts in Mac. Can i get it to always restart in Windows? 2- When my Windows upgrades come in, can i set them to always do this when i'm not on my computer, like about 0300? Thanks in advance for any help given, as i could really use it.

    My Macbook is not in front of me at the moment and I am going off of memory, but the process is something like this for Question 1:

    Hold down the Option key when booting. When you see the two drives, Mac and Windows, hold down the Option key and click the Windows drive. This will select it to automatically boot to it.

    That is correct, however, you have to do that every time you start the Mac. I was trying to avoid doing that.

    OK, so my information was not quite accurate. Use the option key at startup to get to the screen where you select the disk, then hold the control key and click the disk. It will then be the default startup disk.

    That did it. Thanks for the help. Just to let other people know, when you click on the Windows arrow, which is below the icon, the arrow changes to a circle. That's how you know that it worked. Thanks again.
