I need to be able to control a mac mini without a screen and I think using screensharing would be enough. I've enabled screensharing, setup a manual IP address and I have an ethernet cable.
The problem is I don't have display to use on the mac mini and I currently borrowed a keyboard and a firewire cable to setup screensharing:
- booted mac mini in target mode (wish there was a way to do it without the keyboard)
- booted the macbook holding the
altkey and choosing the firewire drive
The problem is the mac mini has a bootcamp partition setup to which it boots by default. I googled a bit and tried the
System Preferences > Startup Disk option then the /etc/fstab route but no joy: the mac mini still boots to Windows.
How can I get the macmini to simply boot to it's osx all the time (given that I have to change the settings on a macbook with a firewire cable) ?
