Hi,

I have recently added a new drive to my hackintosh, and used the carbon copier to duplicate my old OS drive to the new one and everything works fine. However, the boot loader is still trying to start from the old one and I have to manually change the boot drive every time the computer starts.

There must be a way to change the default boot volume, but I can't find it. (I don't seem to have the Default Partition setting in com.apple.Boot.plist.)

Thanks,

Jason

Sometimes, most obvious things slipped under my eyes - bios boot priority setting. Its all good now. Thanks.

Perhaps an easier way is to go to System Preferences>>Startup Disk....
