    Boot Order

    How do I change the boot order where Windows will load first? I've got some stubborn family members that want it to just work like it did before. I know I've seen that here before but I can't find it now that I need it.
    Thanks,

    Edit your menu list do you mean?

    Code:
    gksudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst
    afaik you can move windows stanza above the

    ### BEGIN AUTOMAGIC KERNELS LIST
    set default as 0 and it will boot win first and the win entry won't be moved on grub updates.

    A safe and easy way to tweak grub menu settings is with StartUp-Manager. You can set the default OS, how long the menu displays, how many kernels to show, and much more. I highly recommend this gui app.

    Maybe it is easier, but edit'ing files is more of an Linux way, lol. Not that scary as it might look.
