better if it's prefpane :/
I like QuickBoot over the alternatives in that it gives me all the possible choices for booting. I have the SL install DVD in its own partition, along with 2 separate clones and Win 7 x64. With QuickBoot, I can easily run any one of them.
Absolutely great, works flawlessly on 10.6.4 (Intel). To make a remote (head-less) server fail-safe and always start up, at terminated power, on a 'safe' partition/hard disk. (A donation link to keep the incitement up would be nice ;-)
Intel Only Feature:
One shot boot to another drive, then return to the normal on subsequent boot---
Failed to return on my machine (12" PowerBook, 1.5GHz G4, OS 10.5.8).
Jeremy Knope / Buttered Cat Software responded and confirmed that this does not work on PPC machines.
Nice idea for those of us who do bootable backups and do maintenance from another drive. I guess I'll continue to ride System Preferences/Startup Disk until I eventually replace my Mac
Installed it on MacBook with Snow Leopard 10.6.1, and made it active in the top Finder menu bar. Had it running for about three days and during that time, my menu bar would either be completely transparent, be completely non-existent, be completely unresponsive, or no Finder at all except for the wall paper and the app dock. As soon as I removed it from the Finder menu bar, the computer was back to normal. It looked like it would be a very useful utility, but I think I can do without it to keep my Finder working properly. If anyone has any suggestions how to correct this issue, please post. Thanks.
This is great. Just one of those damn handy little apps that's good to have.
Great little app. Does exactly what it's supposed to with no fuss. Also the company name is truly awesome!
By the way, I love the title of the company.
Thanks :) glad you like it.
Cyberatomic, think twice: I got FileVault and quite a lot of times it will take a couple of minutes to re-boot, since FileVault will compact the Sparse Image at logoff. So I sometimes wait 5 minutes pressing the alt key just to get the boot menu. Quite annoying...
