    Revert to Ubuntu's Grub boot

    Hello all,

    I have stepped out of my Ubuntu shell and have been messing around with other Linux distros. However, whenever I install a new distro, it installs its own version of GRUB; I would like to stick with Ubuntu's, since that is the one I use the most and, since I often have to edit GRUB, it makes sense (also the GRUB configuration utility doesn't work well with Fedora or Fedora's bootloader.) Does anyone have any idea how I can set Ubuntu's grub to work by default? By the way, GRUB2 of course. Thanks,

    Can you boot into Ubuntu? If so run

    sudo update-grub
    and see if it detects the other operating systems. Then run

    sudo grub-install /dev/sda
    That is assuming that you only have one hard disk and Ubuntu is installed on sda. That will put Ubuntu back in control of Grub in the MBR.

    It is a machine. It is more stupid than we are. It will not stop us from doing stupid things.
