    ubuntu restart and load windows automatically

    I have an ACPI problem which means I need to boot into Ubuntu and reboot into Windows. The BIOS can't turn ACPI off or otherwise be configured to solve it.
    Is there a way to make Ubuntu automatically load as first boot and restart itself and go to windows?

    So somehow make Ubuntu load first > automatically restart as soon as the kernel is loaded > make Windows load as a one-off first, it would solve my problem.

    How could I find that?

    I don't think that is possible, without re-writing the GRUB menu each time, doing an update-grub, and changing the default OS to boot. Then you'd have Windows as the default, which is worse than death, IMHO.

    If you're using UEFI, you can use systemd to boot into a different EFI image. I've used it to boot into the system setup, but I understand that it can also load the Windows boot loader (I haven't used Windows for 15 years, so I have no experience of that). I believe the command is systemd-boot, but I'm not near my computer to check
