Chapter 8. Configuring, Customizing, and... > Controlling System Startup

Controlling System Startup

Under Mac OS X, you can use several startup options. The most straightforward way is to use the Startup Disk pane of the System Preferences utility to choose a startup volume. There are other ways you can control system startup as well, such as choosing a startup volume during the startup process, starting up in the single-user mode, and starting up in the verbose mode.

Choosing a Startup Volume with System Preferences

The Startup Disk pane of the System Preferences utility enables you to choose a startup volume. Open the pane and you will see a list of the valid startup volumes on your machine. Select the volume from which you want to start up and click Restart. You will be prompted to confirm this action by clicking the Save and Restart button. Your selection will be saved and your Mac will start up from that volume.
