i have 500gb HDD, first i install window 7(64-bit) then after fedora14 on separate partition using Fedora-14-i686-Live-Desktop cd.
so when my laptop is booting it shows a boot screen with two option, fedora OS(as default) and win7 as other.After 3 second, Fedora is automatically starting. I just want to make window7 as my automatic booting OS.
so how to make win7 as my default or primary OS at boot time by which i can load it automatically ?.
bt it shows boot option ...bt in that boot option my first OS is fedora which is booting after 3 second by default .so my question is that how could i make window7 as my first OS.. by which i can boot it automatically.
I don't know if ubuntu is any different with GRUB, but I have ubuntu and this is what I did:
Get the startup Manager Application
Assuming this is the GRUB bootloader
Boot ubuntu, and type: "sudo gedit /boot/grub/grub.cfg" into the console(no quotes)
You should get something that looks like this in the text editor:
# DO NOT EDIT THIS FILE
# It is automatically generated by grub-mkconfig using templates
# from /etc/grub.d and settings from /etc/default/grub
### BEGIN /etc/grub.d/00_header ###
if [ -s $prefix/grubenv ]; then
If the text file is blank, try "sudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst"
This last line, set default="1" is the thing that you need to change.
The count starts at 0 so to boot the very first option in the menu, put 0, for the second option put 1, third option put 2, etc...
Then save+close. Reboot and it should change the default. (Be sure not to change anything else or it could cause boot problems)
