Jun 19, 2011

It's quite easy to change the default boot entry through etc/default/grub. However, this only allows for the first entry to be changed. I want to be able to move all the entries in any order I like. What is the best/easiest way to do this?

Fedora :: Change The Boot Order In Xp?

Jun 16, 2011

how slow XP was on my laptop, a casual friend (who moved away and I have since lost touch with) installed Fed 11 as a dual boot with XP, Fed 11 first. It has worked great for email and some net surfing. Now the machine is going to my wife, who does not want have to go to the boot menu to get XP. How do I change the order so that XP boots first and you have to go to the menu to get Fed 11? I've tried going through the forums, but since I'm not really a computer person, there are some basics I don't know (for example "open a terminal" - how does one do that?)

I have two questions:

1. I had Win XP, I've installed Ubuntu on another Partition, now Ubuntu starts first, can I change XP to be the first one to load ? And how to do it ?

2. When I have to choose from 2 installed systems on the screen I see, Ubuntu, Testmem and Windows XP, can I rename Windows XP title to something else ? And how to do it ?

Ubuntu Installation :: Change Order Of Boot Menu?

Nov 29, 2010

Using StartupManager (as Quackers had suggested) I do indeed have Windows as my default boot, although it appears at the bottom of the menu. See Dilemma 1 below for that detail.

Dilemma 1:Grub2 has set up the boot menu so that Windows is the last item on the menu. This is because the Menuitem entries for the Ubuntu kernels are generated by script 10_linux, while the Windows Menuitem entry is generated by script 30_os-prober. Of course, in generating /boot/grub/grub.cfg, the 10_linux script is executed before 30_os-prober, dictating the order of their appearance on the menu.

I'd like to see Windows as the top menu item. Under grub, I would edit /boot/grub/menu.lst, pull the Windows menu item out of the "Automagical" section and voila! It stays on top no matter how many times I upgrade the kernel. While I could possibly do the same with /boot/grub/grub.cfg (see thread "how can I change the order of the boot menu?" for the suggestion) we should all know by now that the next time I update the kernel, my changes will all go away, because we are not supposed to edit that file by hand.

Dilemma 2: As I download and install kernel updates, all the old kernels still show up on my boot menu. My concern is that eventually the sheer number of Linux kernels will render the boot menu unreadable. This is especially of concern if I cannot get Windows to the top of the boot menu. Under grub, I used to edit the menu.lst and comment out the listing of any kernels more than 2 versions old. Now, how do I arrange this omission? A manual edit of 10_linux will be acceptable, provided it still displays the 2 or 3 most recent Linux kernels and their corresponding memtests.

Ubuntu :: Edit To Change Boot Order And Various Boot Selections?

Jan 6, 2010

I upgraded from XP to Windows 7 (I need this for legacy business) and decided to install Ubuntu permanently rather than using from CD. During an Ubuntu session I was prompted to upgrade, which I did, but when I boot up now, there seems to be 2 versions of Ubuntu which I can choose from the boot up menu, plus the usual mem test, safe mode etc, plus the option to boot Windows 7.

Firstly, is there in fact more than one Ubuntu image (and therefore precious disk space taken up), how do I find out, and if so what action should I take?If there is only one Ubuntu and one Windows 7 image, how do I edit (and where is the file) to change the boot order and the various boot selections?

Red Hat / Fedora :: Change The Service Load Or Boot Order On My CentOS 5.3 Box?

Jun 2, 2009

I'm running into a strange problem trying to change the service load or boot order on my CentOS 5.3 box.

The service in question is shorewall. When I go to my /etc/rc.d/rc5.d/, I notice that shorewall is listed a S27shorewall. I need it to start much later. So I run a simple command "mv S27shorewall S99shorewall"

I then restart the server. But after the reboot, something has reset it back to S27shorewall.

For those of you who like the background story: I need to change it to S99shorewall, because I need shorewall to start AFTER xend does all its stuff, as xend messes around with the underlying networking of the computer. The xend stuff was at S98 and S99...but I was able to successfully rename them back to S97 and S98, and the rename stuck. I've also renamed other service orders. Those stick. The only one that gets reset is shorewall, always back to S27. I have no clue how to tell what is causing the resetting...

Ubuntu Installation :: Will Have To Change Anything Relating To HDDs Boot Order In BIOS?

Sep 21, 2010

I have a new machine arriving tomorrow and plan on installing ubuntu 10.04 x64 and windows 7 professional. I've only ever had a single HDD before, but now I have 2 * 640GB drives.Does it matter what OS I install first?Will I have to change anything relating to the HDDs boot order in the BIOS?I only got 2 HDDs so in the event of needing to reinstall one of the OS's they're on completely different drives. Also, in the eventuality I need to reinstall one of the OSs is it simply a normal reinstall procedure, or because they're on two seperate drives will I need to do anything different?

Red Hat / Fedora :: Cannot Modify Grub Menu File - Need To Change Boot Order

Mar 3, 2009

I recently installed a 64-bit version of centOS 5 alongside a 32-bit version, which I use. Turns out the 64-bit version absolutely will not boot and I'm stuck with it as my default boot option. Since the grub being used resides on the 64-bit half, I cant edit the menu file but I know theres a way to do this without it, through grub itself. I have about 29 render nodes now with this problem, and whenever they need to be rebooted I have to hook a monitor up to each one and hold its hand through the boot process. How to change the grub menu through grub itself, basically just change the default boot option and then have it stay that way?

Ubuntu :: Change GRUB Boot Order: No /boot/grub/menu.lst File

Nov 29, 2010

i am trying to change the boot order on the GRUB menu so that the countdown automatically starts on an older kernel. From what i can see all the solutions on the web want me to edit the /boot/grub/menu.lst file. The problem is that i don't have one. Someone also mentioned that if i don't have a menu.lst file then i should look for the grub.conf file. I don't have on of those either. The closest thing in /boot/grub is grub.cfg but that looks nothing like the descriptions i have heard of /boot/grub/menu.lst file

Ubuntu :: Change Order Of Boot Options?

Jul 5, 2010

I am using Ubuntu 10.04 x64 in a three-boot configuration; the first boot choice screen (the one I would like to change) gives the options of booting to Ubuntu, 3 options I don't understand, and booting to Windows 7. Unfortunately, at least for me, Ubuntu is at the top and is the default. [The third choice is Win XP x32 - but it appears on a separate screen]

My question: How can I make the boot to Windows 7 the default choice?

Ubuntu :: Dual Boot With Xp Cannot Change Order?

Aug 18, 2011

I installed Ubuntu 11.04 as a dual boot system. I am given 5 choices with XP choice 5. Unless I highlight it I will boot into Ubuntu. I used the startup manager, and indicated that XP should be the default OS. Nothing changed. I tried the PySDM storage device manager which lists the partitions, but does not allow me to make changes.

General :: Can't Change The Boot Partition Order?

Jan 27, 2011

I recently installed Ubuntu on one of my partitoins. Sinec I am new, I formatted that partition to install a different type. Now when I boot my machine, instead of booting to my Windows partitoin, it boots to my blank Linux partition and gives me a Linux prompt.

I can boot from the Ubuntu DVD, by changing it in my BIOS, but I can't change the boot partition order within Linux (that I know of).

General :: Change The Macintosh Boot Order?

Feb 19, 2010

I'm working with an employer as part of a college internship. I work on anyone's computer that brings it in. Some lady brought in a macintosh. I'm not here to give my opinion on evil, controlling corporations, but I can't figure out how to get the thing to change boot order.

It has an old and unsupported version of OSX, it's "panther" and I can't even install any firefox after 2.0. It has 256mb ram and a 1.8ghz single core so I thought to dual boot it with debian.

-Tried holding "C"
-Tried holding "option key" (alt)
-Tried holding command (windows) + option + shift + delete
-Went into system prefs and chose "startup disk" but it doesn't list the CD drive at all.

The bios, or whatever it is, is completely blank at startup besides an apple logo.
