Booted in OS X
Default startup disk is Windows

The computer reboots in OS X **script is working**

Booted in OS X
Default startup disk is Macintosh HD
I run the script (to boot in Windows)
The computer reboots in OS X **script fails**

Booted in OS X
Default startup disk is Windows
I run the script (to boot in OS X) with --nextonly
The computer reboots in OS X once
The computer boots in Windows on the following reboots **script is working**

Booted in OS X
Default startup disk is Macintosh HD
