Is there a way when you turn on your MAC to have a welcome screen that allows you to choose between MAC OSX or Windows 7 ?

My friend has a mac book pro as well as windows 7 boot camp.

Hold down the Option key as the Mac boots.

ijack is correct :)  (as always), another way would be to load a third party program called rEFIt, this will automatically load up a screen where you choose without holding down the option button. (add: The Program does a ton more than allow you a menu before OS boot, but if that's what your looking for it does that too.

Just try it and see!

(Hint - You'll be presented with icons for each bootable volume - you click on the one that you want to use.)
