Edit dual-boot menu for ubuntu?

Fri Dec 09, 2011 11:03 pm

I downloaded ubuntu but the last time i installed it, it added itself on the first line of the dual-boot so after 10 seconds it booted up ubuntu. How do i edit the menu to make windows be the default OS?

You should checkout EasyBCD for Windows.

Unless you are using a Windows bootloader to boot into Linux, msconfig will not be much use.

There are mentions of editing the boot menu in this thread: viewtopic.php?f=17&p=47981
