Booting with Darwin bootloader.

After I installed my kalyway release, on the first boot, Darwin gave me the choice between my Windows Partition, my data partition (which doesnt have a boot flag), and my OSX partition.


I thought I was gonna have to chain0, but selecting either windows or osx worked with darwin so i figured since it was easier why argue.


However, Windows is the default, and I wanna delete the data partition from the list since it isn't a bootable partition.


I went into /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist in textedit, but all that was there is the following:


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
<key>Kernel Flags</key>



So I'm not really sure how that corresponds to what I see when I boot.


I'm sure it's Darwin because it says Darwin/x86, and I didn't do the chain0 method so it can't be Windows bootloader.



What am I doing wrong? How can I edit this?

Darwin Boot loader just lists all the partitions on the Hard Disk and by default will boot the active partition (OSX in this case). This behaviour cannot be changed
