Is there a way to configure a Bootcamped Mac Mini to boot directly into Windows rather than having it boot to OS-X by default?
(Note: uninstalling OS-X is not an option.)

Update on 03/09/2010: Options to select a startup disk are greyed out and not available, plus only the Mac OS-X partition is showing and the Bootcamp partition/disk doesn't appear.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

From within Mac OS X, fire up System, then navigate to "Startup Disk" and select your Boot Camp partition. That's it!

Question shouldn't be post here I think.

By the way you can do it by configuring startup options, they should be in System Preferences. Maybe the exact name of the item is Startup Disk.

Even though the Bootcamp partition didn't show up under Startup Disk settings under Mac OS-X, I was able to select the Bootcamp settings when booted into Windows to set "Bootcamp" as the default startup disk. It shows up there, just not under OS-X.
