Hello,

I have Windows 8.1 and Yosemite on separate SSDs and use my MSI motherboard boot menu to select which drive to boot from since the bootloader on my OS X drive does not allow me to boot into Windows.

My default boot sequence is Windows drive, then OS X drive then USB and CD. My question is: Is there a tool available for os x and windows which would allow me to force boot from another boot device?

For example, if I'm in Windows on SSD1, I want to be able to run a script or some similar task to shutdown and boot from SSD2 where OS X lives and vice versa. Not sure if this is possible, but let me know if there is anything available.

Thanks,
ZosoCoder

I've been trying to get the same thing working... Have you managed to figure it out?

Which boot loader are you booting Yosemite from? Chimera or Clover?
