Boot to Windows partition quickly
Authored by: artcarney on Oct 27, '11 10:50:37PM

I'm into ham radio and while there are some exciting new apps for that I still find the best software for what I want to do is on Windows and that software doesn't even begin to work with Wine/Wine Bottler, VirtualBox and the others (USB issues) so I found myself installing Win7 Pro on a 50 gig Bootcamp partition.

In the past I tried downloading BootChamp but I discovered it didn't play with Lion so I tried this script and it's works perfectly!

Well, actually I tried living without it at first but it always seemed I would get distracted and forget to hold down the opt/alt key at boot and back into OS X I would go instead of Win7.

So Thanks for the script! It saves an old guy like me a couple of unnecessary reboots to get to my Win7 setup so I can play radio!
