View Full Version : [ubuntu] Change Order of Boot Options

Hello:

I am using Ubuntu 10.04 x64 in a three-boot configuration; the first boot choice screen (the one I would like to change) gives the options of booting to Ubuntu, 3 options I don't understand, and booting to Windows 7. Unfortunately, at least for me, Ubuntu is at the top and is the default. [The third choice is Win XP x32 - but it appears on a separate screen]

My question: How can I make the boot to Windows 7 the default choice?

Thank you for your kind assistance in advance.

the quick and easy to make a default boot:
Startup manager in synaptic will allow you to set boot default and the timeout even in lucid.

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/StartUpManager
Download and install "StartUp-Manager from Synaptic package downloads. It will be listed under System/Administration menu. You can set it to default with Ubuntu (different versions) or Windows. You can also set the start up time in seconds.


If you want to rearrange menus, it starts to get more complicated. But we can give specific instructions.
