Bypassing Darwin Selecting Startup Screen?

Hey guys, I was wondering if it's possible to go from the selecting operating screen, after selecting OSX, and automatically boot OSX instead of the Darwin selecting startup screen? Sorry for being a noob. I just didn't know what to search for this. :)



Slecting operating screen



Here is the Darwin startup screen

hd(0,1) Windows NTFS (contain XP)

hd(0,5) Windows NTFS (free partition)

hd(0,6) OSX (contain OSX obviously)



After selecting OSX

You need to edit the following file:




Mine looks like this:

<?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>Boot Graphics</key>
<key>Kernel Flags</key>
<string>-v</string> <!If you leave it like this you will see the verbose boot, if you want to continue to see the graphics remove the "-v"> 
<key>Quiet Boot</key>


Hope this helps you.


Best regards,
