Can't boot into Mac by default. I have to press F12 to enter boot options, and then boot into mac that way. If I dont then it automatically boots to windows. I went into the BIOS and tried making the default start up disk the Mac partition but it doesnt even recognize it, it only shows the windows hard drive.

PS windows and mac are on separate hard drive. My motherboard is a Z77n WIFI and i have the latest bios

Are you sure you are in the correct section of the BIOS.

You may need to go into the section of the BIOS that sets the order of the different hard drives on your computer and set the drive containing OS X as drive #1 and move the drive with Windows down to drive# 2. Then go into the section of the BIOS that sets the boot drive order and set the drive containing OS X as the first drive in the boot order.
