View Full Version : [ubuntu] changing boot order in grub

March 12th, 2010, 06:59 AM
I run Win 2000 and Ubuntu 8.04 on an Acer Veriton after some fiddling I lost windows from the boot list. After several unsuccessful attempts at editing the grub menu list and using startup manager I did the following ::
1. in Sum entered Windows as the default starter
2.changed time out And Then


sudo apt-get update

Then after that finished, 'sudo apt-get upgrade'.

sudo apt-get upgrade

then re-installing GRUB to MBR with 'sudo grub-install /dev/sda'.

sudo grub-install /dev/sda

I do not know exactly what happened but I got the result I was after .Seems to me sum cant manage on its own.
