    Hi everyone, is there a way of making an icon or a short script to thats easier to get to when I want to reboot with boot camp?

    It seems a bit of a ball-ache to go to system prefs then startup disk etc every time and I have to switch fairly regularly. I didn't like virtual box either so I do still want to carry on using bot camp too.

    I'm pretty rubbish with automator so I wouldn't have a clue (if it's even possible) to get it to do it for me. Any ideas?

    Cheers guys

    Chris

    MR's own kainjow has a program called BootChamp which lives in the menu bar and is quite handy. http://www.kainjow.com/

    Thanks!

    Yeah cheers man thats awesome! It works a treat too!

    The best bit is that it only boots in windows the once. So when I switch off my MacBook, even if it's in windows it boots in OS X :)

    My Thanks go out to the creator (and you for your suggestion)!
