Hi. Here's a little background info. I have the 1st gen. aluminum iMac which I've partitioned and installed XP onto one of the volumes. It's easy to choose between the 2. I just hit option (alt) just after powering up to choose which volume to boot. Next, I've recently purchased a Macbook Pro (gen 6.1, :D it!) and have been remotely accessing my iMac from my Macbook.I have no problem accessing the mac side of the iMac (and restarting, reconnecting, etc). And from there when I want to get into windows remotely, I just go back System Prefs and choose the windows volume as the startup disk then restart and it starts up in windows and I connect via microsoft remote desktop connection (RDC). My problem is that I can't figure out how to (when in windows-controlling remotely from Macbook) change the startup volume back to the mac and reboot it so I can re-remotely connect on the mac volume. Is there a command that I can use or anything I can do to
1: select mac volume as startup disk
2: restart from windows (so when I restart it goes back to mac assuming I've been informed of how to choose the mac volume for startup) --because it only has the option to shutdown, not to restart in RDC?
