I have a macbook with snow leopard and it is dual boot with windows 7.  The windows partition has a problem and I cannot get my machine to boot into the apple partition so I can back up things before taking it to be fixed.  Any thoughts?  Don

My aging macbook with snow leopard is dual boot with windows 7.  The windows partiton is not working after trying to update virus checker.  I need to back up the mac partiton before taking it to be fixed.  Any ideas how I force a reboot back to OSX? 


Thanks in advance
