Because I use USB Windows keyboard on my old Intel Mac Pro, I do find it difficult to get into the boot menu.
So to help me with that, I wanted to always boot into the boot menu where I can select the startup disk.

Thank goodness this can be enabled in Terminal with:

sudo nvram manufacturing-enter-picker=true

Note that this requires elevated privileges (sudo) so it will ask for your password.

To disable it again (default setting):

sudo nvram manufacturing-enter-picker=false
