Hello everyone,

I agree! It'd be especially useful when restarting after updates, etc. I have a bad habit of stepping away to do something else while it restarts, then coming back to find it in the wrong OS.

The weird thing is that I'm pretty sure at one point I had a bootloader that behaved this way, though it's been long ago enough that I can't remember if it was a version of Chameleon or Chimera or something completely different.

:idea: Yes please, very handy it would be, I don't even understand why it isn't implemented yet :idea:
It's not as easy as you think.

Well I am no programmer but if it's possible at all, either "remember last choice" or a way to choose which OS to boot before shutting down the OSes would be superb!

Is there a way to edit the org.Chameleon.boot.plist file to specify which partition is the default and also specify to NOT WAIT or only wait "X" seconds before continuing to boot?

Is it possible that there is a <key> for boot drive/partition and a <string> to specify which to use?

I initially boot from a USB stick if that makes any difference.
