Try editing your boot.plist file:


In Terminal, type:


sudo nano /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist



then add these lines


<key>Quiet Boot</key>





save, exit and reboot

Hi there,


Just wondering if the Darwin boot menu can be set to offer OS choices automatically -- I.e without needing to press f8 quickly.


Some startup file to edit or likewise?

Thanks all,


MrBryan, do the method suggested by Rammjet. That will allow you to setup a boot menu that will give you a 10 seconds waiting time to press any key and display an OS booting menu, without the need to buy any extra software to build that. It works great, I am using it. If you don't know how to exactly do this check this page on my guide. It has detailed instruction and you can see a picture of the menu too.
