Hi

How do you tell the New Mac Pro which is the primary and boot up monitor?

It always chooses one of the side ones depending which one I have plugged in. I always want the main display to be the Apple 27" Thunderbolt model but for some reason it always chooses a side display (HDMI or a Mini Display Port monitor).

I know you can drag the small white bar across monitors in the Display->Arrangement settings menu but that doesn't change my boot up display.

Any ideas?

Cheers

In my setup the boot monitor (where all the partitions appear if I press ALT at boot) is always the one connected to bus 1 (I don't have anything on the HDMI).

Moving the small white bar only changes on what monitor I have to login.
