How to Bless Your Drive

STEP ONE:

Go to Disk Utility (Finder -> Applications -> Utilities -> Disk Utility) and get the name of your drive. If your drive is not named Fledging_Feather, make sure to read the NOTICE at the end of this documentation. If your drive is named Fledging_Feather, please proceed to the next step.

STEP TWO: 

Open Terminal (Finder -> Applications -> Utilities -> Terminal) and type the following command (or copy paste). Again, make sure to read the NOTICE at the end of this documentation if your drive is not named Fledging_Feather:

sudo bless --folder /Volumes/Fledging_Feather/System/Library/CoreServices/ --file /Volumes/Fledging_Feather/System/Library/CoreServices/boot.efi --bootefi /Volumes/Fledging_Feather/System/Library/CoreServices/boot.efi --setBoot  --nextonly --quiet

STEP THREE: 

Press return. You will be prompted with a password. Please type in your user password and press return again. Note that you will not be able to view the password you are typing in.

STEP FOUR: 

Repeat steps two and three with this secondary command, which will complete the blessing of your drive:

sudo bless --mount /Volumes/Fledging_Feather/System/Library/CoreServices/ --file /Volumes/Fledging_Feather/System/Library/CoreServices/boot.efi --setBoot --nextonly --quiet

STEP FIVE: 

Turn your computer off. Turn it on again and watch the Apple logo appear right away! If you are having any problems blessing your drive, please reach out to us at contact@fledging.net
