I am new to Ubuntu and to Linux in general.
I installed Ubuntu 12.04 to a brand new desktop which had Windows 7 pre-installed, and am dual-booting between them.
Both operating systems work well.
Then I tried to change the order of the boot menu to make Ubuntu first and Windows 7 second. I did this from the windows side (it seems that my setup is relying on the Windows boot loader, which I don't think I need to change) using the built-in startup manager (I think that's what windows calls it- it's in the control panel).
I set Ubuntu as first (default if no user input).
Then I accidentally ("hmmm...I wonder what this button does?") set the menu timeout to
Now, I cannot change the menu timeout (because I cannot get into Windows) and without doing so, I cannot select Windows as the OS I would like to boot (I cannot get into windows).
How can I fix this?
