Dual Booting

Asked by Lucas Gane on 2012-11-06

I have a computer with Windows and Ubuntu and every time you start the computer you choose whic OS you want. But my parents that don't know anything about computers need to use it because our other computer broke. I want to select Windows to bbot every time I start then when I want to use the computer when I click the on button I can click a button to choose ubuntu. This will be easier for my parents to not go all the way down the list and select windows every time it starts.

sudo mv /etc/grub.d/30_os-prober /etc/grub.d/09_os-prober
sudo update-grub

Windows is now the default

I have no idea what you just said.

Copy the first command and press CTRL+ALT+T
Paste the command to the terminaland hit ENTER
Type your password (You will get no feedback but it is being accepted) and hit ENTER
If you get no output it has worked and you can then copy and paste the second command to the terminal and hit ENTER
Once the second command completes, reboot to test
