Got a bit of a strange issue here.


I've set a mac mini that is running windows server software to always boot into the windows partition through "startup disk" in sys prefs. It does this just fine when properly shut down or restarted, but always boots back into OSX if the power down is unexpected. Of course, one might say, well hold down the "option" key when it restarts and choose where you want to boot to, but this machine will often be left unattended, and it NEEDS to go right back into Windows if that happens.


Your thoughts?
