I am using a new 8 core (26 gb memory) Mac Pro with Bootcamp

This answer was rated:

I am using a new 8 core (26 gb memory) Mac Pro with Bootcamp 3.1 and Windows 7(x64). I am using physically separate hard drives for OS10.6 and W7. Everything works well EXCEPT I cannot over-ride the startup disk by holding down the option/alt key during initial boot. I can change OS by manually changing the startup disk once I am booted in one of the operating systems.


Kyle Brockman : Try reseting the pram. This can be done by holding down command option P R
