I have setup a dual boot Windows 8 / Ubuntu 12.04, and everything is fine with that.

Only, as I use Windows mainly I would like the Grub bootloader to automatically boot up windows instead of Ubuntu, which is also useful when installing drivers.

Is this possible? To rearrange the priorities on Grub?
