    Hi

    I have 2 HDs in my mac mini. Every time i start up my mac, the system boots on the selected hard drive. No problems with that. Is there a way to choose (every time i boot my computer) which drive i want to boot on?

    Thanks!

    Is there a way to bring up the Startup Manager automatically without pressing option key?

    During bootup, NO, there isn't.

    BEFORE you restart, go to System Preferences and select the Startup Disk pane, and you can select which drive to start from immediately after a restart (or from a cold boot).

    The boot manager rEFInd will do what you want.
