com.apple.Boot.plist - Please help! - 09-06-2010, 06:57 PM
So, I have my OSX and 7 Dual Boot running. Great!
However, now I am trying to make some tweaks and I am banging my head. Namely, I want to change the default OS that loads, or possibly make it so that the boot menu loads automatically.
I have researched this thread: http://www.mydellmini.com/forum/mac-...2-20-09-a.html
Documentation for Chameleon 2.0 RC
In the least the load menu automatically looks straightforward being:
However, try as I might and no matter how many times I change com.apple.Boot.plist . Nothing happens. I am using the Plist found by right clicking on the Netbookinstaller and drilling down to the Dell Mini 10v folder and then looking in "extrafiles". Is this correct?
I have also read that there is another Plist in the Mac OS intsall under system preferences. I found this and started messing around with it. Luckily I didn't mess-up my machine. I read that you shouldn't have to edit this one.
Can someone please point me in the right direction?
