Ok so when you goto the "task bar" you see an option like this
And when you select "Restart in OS X" it defaults to your backup correct?
If you select Boot Camp Control Panel do you see something like this?
If you are in the control Panel, select the desired boot volume, then click Restart in the control panel does it boot to the correct volume? I.E. don't hit the Reboot In Mac OS X in the task bar.
No. Neither clicking in the control panel, selecting the desired boot volume, then clicking Restart in the control panel OR hitting reboot in the Mac OS X in the task bar works. I've tried both.
But I have very good news
, I have found a very easy work-around. I got an alert in Windows that I had an update and that I should select restart and install the update. Well it turned out that after I selected "restart and install updates" there were 90 frakin' 5 of them! OS X gives you the option of opting out of updates... grumble. But that's neither here nor there. Anyway I went off and did more of the heavy labor I had to do anyway and when I came back it had rebooted after the updates... to my main OS X drive!!!! Huzzah!!! And more -> !! I went back into Windows via Bootchamp then clicked on Start in the task bar, went up to the upper right and clicked on the power icon, selected "Restart" from the drop down menu and rebooted onto my main OS X drive like a boss.
So there it is! DirtyHarry, I have an easy workaround for you bro. And Macdude, looks like I'm having...

Your boot troubles aside, this was music to my ears. Everyone's heard me whining about how Apple no longer makes a tower like i want, so I'm keeping the ol' Mac Pro 2008 going as long as I can. Playing the big hog titles under bootcamp definitely seems like a good way to get a couple more years out of it. I might even spring for a 2nd SSD for the Windows partition to live on.
No rush, but it's nice to finally have a plan.
I'm ecstatic. My game has leapfrogged itself. Now not only do my games play a million times better as well as not having time to play all the games I want to in my lifetime, I DON'T HAVE TIME TO PLAY ALL THE GAMES I WANT TO IN 50 LIFETIMES!
Matt I got a SSD-HD hybrid, a Seagate SSHD. The OS goes onto the SSD section and it is super fast, but the rest of the disk is a regular spinning hard disk. The result is a lightening fast OS supporting a game. My load times are a fraction of what they are in OS X on a SSD and the map transition is startlingly fast, unreal fast. Slow loads and an excruciatingly long map transition was my experience with the super slow OS X Pre-Sequel on a SSD. Gets you a Seagate SSHD fo yo Windows boy.
