Windows 7: Windows 7/Mac OSX dual boot issues.

Windows 7/Mac OSX dual boot issues.

Hi there. I already saw a thread on this subject, but I have a slightly different problem. I have a dual boot (I hope) machine, I had Mac OSX on it, it's a windows machine, I previously had Vista/OSX dual booted, but wanted to get rid of Vista because well, it was just awful. I left OSX on there to use while I searched for a solution, originally tried to install XPO on the other partition but due to Driver problems was unable to. Got myself Windows 7. Installed it on the free partition, but now there's no boot manager on boot. I don't have the option to boot OSX, just skips over and goes straight to 7. This is a problem as I make all my music using the OSX programs, plus all the savedata and stuff is there and would be an absolutel tragedy if I lost it. Tried to read the data using MAcDrive, but not even that will detect it, put that down to compatibility issues with 7 as was an error upon installation. Does anyone have any clue as to what I can try? Thanks in advance
