BootChamp is a small utility for quickly booting into Windows.

How is this different than selecting your Windows volume from within Startup Disk in System Preferences?

Well, using Startup Disk actually changes your startup disk permanently so that each time you restart, it boots into whatever you have selected. What this program is doing is the same thing that happens when you hold down Option at startup and select Windows. However, the app only requires a single click and your admin password, and then it restarts your computer into Windows without further input from you. It will not actually change your startup more...

Make sure your BootChamp volume is mounted and visible on the desktop.

I went to the boot champ help menu and it says the volume must be mounted and visible in finder. I am not sure what it means, which folder, I tried the applications folder but it won't work

This app is not working on my MacBook Air (2013 model) with Windows 8 installed using EFI. It just gives me an error after restart "No bootable device found. Press any key to restart." Booting into Windows works fine when choosing as startup disk in Mac OS or when holding down option key at startup.

I Have the exact same issue MBP 2013 mavericks booting to win 8.1 and get No bootable device found

I spoke to Kevin (kainjow) about the problem back in August. He suspects it's an issue with the new hardware (most likely from Haswell CPU microarchitecture). He thinks the problem may resolve itself over future software updates. Until then we are SOL. =|

Here it is April 2014 and this issue still exists. Same exact problem with my late 2013 Imac. No bootable device found when using bootchamp, but it works perfectly fine when using apples method of choosing startup disk.

Have you tried contacting the developer about your problem? We have a link to his site at the top of the page, and his e-mail address is right there: kainjow@kainjow.com. Why don't you write to him and see if you can start some kind of troubleshooting rather than simply dissing his app with a one-star rating?

I guess I meant to write this in troubleshooting. I can't edit delete this post though.

Works great, not sure why this isn't an option by default from Apple!

This is the Mac version of Apple's Menu item for Windows to "Boot into Mac OS X".

Simple, works.
