I have a dual boot system of Ubuntu 12.10 and Windows 7. Stupidly, I set my default boot OS to Windows 7 using this method and set
GRUB_TIMEOUT=0. Now when I boot, the Ubuntu red/purple screen flashes on and off and proceeds with booting Windows 7, effectively locking me out of Ubuntu.
Is there any way to:
- Change the "booter?" to Windows 7, which would not have the timeout.
- Hold down a key to over-ride the timeout? I've already tried shift without success.
- This link is exactly the problem I've been having, however I don't completely understand the part about booting from a live cd.
