Dual Boot Deployment Tool - Windows Startup Disk Switcher

A problem with managing dual-boot machines (OS X/Windows) is that they are hard to manage since you need to keep two OSes up-to-date, yet only one is running at any given time.

There are solutions that help with this, but a big stopping point was that it was difficult or nearly impossible to programmatically tell a machine booted into Windows to restart into OS X.

Patrick Huber of Minnesota State University has made available a solution to that problem - a utility that can switch the startup disk back to Mac OS X from a Windows session.
