    So I am running in circles trying to get this to work and was hoping someone here would be of help.

    I want to create an application icon of an applescript so i can just click it to boot into bootcamp.

    Here is the info I have found but I have tried a few different things (using quicksilver, using alfred, doing it manually) and I am coming up empty.

    Anyone have better directions on how to pull this off?

    I attached some images of things I have tried to do.. most likely my implementation is wrong and the scripts are fine.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    The "bless" command no longer works since El Capitan.

    You would likely have the same difficulty that the developer of the app BootChamp had.
    BootChamp gives you a menu item that you just click in OS X to restart to the Boot Camp windows system - pretty close to what you want to do.

    The developer of Boot Champ talks about that a little at their site.
    They finally gave up on the software, as Apple is not sharing with third-party developers how to overcome the change.
    You are probably facing that same issue with the "bless" command.

    You could always leave your default boot set for Boot Camp, so restarting would automatically boot to Windows, even while you are booted to OS X. But, you have to set that default in the bootcamp control panel while booted to Windows.
    I don't know if that will help your situation, but there it is! :D

    I need to boot Mac OS first to get a third party fan control software going before booting Windows 7
    and ran into the same problem.
    Using non-Apple disks in a Mac-Mini and had boost the fan profile.
