    Hi,

    Since the release of the DP of Mac OS X Lion I have been dual-booting my late 2008 MacBook.

    I was wondering wether there was a way to make my MacBook always boot in disk selection mode, as if I was holding down the opt-key (=alt-key).

    This would be easier since I dual-boot for a long time, safer, because this way my Mac asks me my firmware password, and faster, because I could turn on auto-login, going straight to my desktop (since I have given my firmware-password anyway).

    I read about always booting in verbose mode by putting "-v" as boot-args in my pram, so I thought there would be a way of doing the same for the disk selection mode...

    Thanks

    Take a look at this.

    It's an efi boot manager, this will let you select between bootable OS' installed on your machine.
