General :: Windows - Change The Order Of All Boot Entries In GRUB2 Not Just The First?

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?

Now it's:

Windows 7

I want:

Windows 7

How do I go about doing it? Do I rename "30_os-prober" in /etc/grub.d/ to "10_os-prober" and "10_linux" to "30_linux"?

Software :: Grub2 Boot Entries Don't Change?

Feb 6, 2010

My grub2 boot entries never change. I have run sudo update-grub and it finds all the proper kernels and such and says that it has updated. I check with the menu.lst and grub.cfg and they both look to be correct

Ubuntu :: Changing Grub2 Menu Entries Order?

Jun 25, 2010

As it stands right now, Grub2 seems to generate menu entries in this order (for my pc)
Ubuntu 2.6.32-22
Ubuntu 2.6.32-22 (recovery)
Ubuntu 2.6.32-21
Ubuntu 2.6.32-21 (recovery)
Windows XP

How can I make it so that Grub generates entries in this order
Ubuntu 2.6.32-22
Windows XP
Ubuntu 2.6.32-22 (recovery
Ubuntu 2.6.32-21
Ubuntu 2.6.32-21 (recovery)

If you're wondering why I care about the order, its because I just installed Grub with an icon based theme. In that situation, it looks silly to have 4 Ubuntu Icons next to each other, and then the windows one at the end.

Ubuntu :: GRUB2 - Change Display Order Multiple Boot Systems

Jul 30, 2010

I've just got a question about this. What if you wanted to change only the display sequence in Grub 2 (Ubuntu 9.10) and not which o/s boots first or is the deault o/s? In previous versions of grub you could just copy & paste the lines in /boot/grub/menu.lst, but this version of grub doesn't allow you to edit /boot/grub/grub.cfg...

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.

General :: Any Proper Way To Change Grub Boot Order

Feb 13, 2010

I am a linux noob and that is the reason I want to boot my windows xp by default. Now kubuntu boots first. I've googled how to do this but the topics of other people with the same 'problem' were old or maybe incorrect. Because the official GRUB Ubuntu wiki says you should not change the /boot/grub/grub.cfg file manually. The first line on the .cfg file is also a warning: Do not edit this file. So it continued looking for a proper way to change the boot order. Then I found something about etc/grub.d and also etc/default/grub. The problem is I don't understand how to change the boot order using this.

General :: How To Easily Change Grub OS Boot Order

Feb 3, 2010

I've seen many, many different solutions for how to change the GRUB boot order. Search no more. This is by far the easiest, safest way to do that.

Open your terminal and type in the following:
sudo apt-get install startupmanager

When that is done go to your control panel and you'll have a new icon that says Startup Manager. Every thing you'll need work with your GRUB menu.

General :: Change Dual-boot Order In Ubuntu 10?

Feb 11, 2011

I have a dual-boot setup in which Ubuntu 10 LTS is the default choice on the menu, followed by 2 or 3 alternate choices and finally Win 7. I would like to know how to change that order, making Win 7 the default. Solutions I've looked at mention editing menu.lst in the /boot/grub directory, but this file does not exist anywhere as far as I can tell. There is a /boot/grub/grub.cfg but it's unclear how that alters the menu sequence.

General :: How Do I Change VMWare 1.x Server's Guest Boot Order

Dec 23, 2010

I have 4 VMs on a Linux host, call them A, B, C, D running on Z. I really don't care when A and B come up, but I would like to make sure that D comes up before C.I believe that in VMWare 2.x it's possible to change the boot order. Is this possible in 1.x as well? Is this done in /etc/vmware/vm-list? I see that there are a number of VMs listed there, including some that have long since been deleted.

General :: Edit Order Of Directory Entries On FAT Filesystem?

Jan 18, 2011

It is needed because of my portable audio player does not order entries and just leaves it as in FAT directory.

Current way of handling this is only moving files around and re-creating directories and placing files there in correct order (keeping in mind where are "holes" in directory list that will be filled by new file in placed to that directory).

What is the more proper way of doing it? (Apart from re-creating all directories each time or using hex editor on disk).

General :: Change The GRUB2 Boot Loader Background Image?

May 1, 2011

i've started off using linux with ubuntu 10.10, and then i moved to linux mint 10 kde, and after finding out that it didn't support my hardware, in specifically my graphics card, i switched back to ubuntu 10.10, and from there i upgraded to 11.04. i hated the gui so i switched it from ubuntu to ubuntu (classic) environment. i also installed kubuntu-desktop too, and it looks a lot like mint 10 kde, i guess it uses kde 4.6, but... it's more stable for me. anyway, what i mean is that, originally ubuntu had a black background, linux mint 10 kde had a pretty cool custom mint background, ubuntu 11.04 has a purple background. i looked on videos, i found people using customized backgrounds, but they either don't explain how they got it *like for instance, someone said opensuse 11 or 13 has an icy penguin animated background, and someone else had one that you could scroll through.* or it's too complicated or outdated. is there a simple way to change your grub2 boot loader background image?

General :: Make Grub2 Boot Into Windows 7?

Jan 30, 2010

I had Windows 7 installed on my system, then I installed Debian testing with grub2 as its boot manager.Initially I couldn't see windows entry in grub at all, so I ran:aptitude install os-prober kcpuload update-grub Now I can see the entry, but when I select it I get only Win7 system restore, instead of the the real thing. Any ides how to make it work?

EDIT: I tried the suggested approach to add a new file to /etc/grub.d, which generated an entry in grub.cfg, but it does not appear in the grub menu on boot :(

I have this:
grzes:/home/ga# cat /etc/grub.d/11_Windows
#! /bin/sh -e
echo Adding Windows >&2
cat << EOF
menuentry "Windows 7″ {

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?

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?)

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?
