As the titles suggests, I have no idea how to change the dual-boot to making ubuntu load over windows, any help would be appreciated
In order to achieve this, you will need to edit your GRUB boot priority order.
You can do it within the terminal, editing grub configuration, as explanained at this link: http://tombuntu.com/index.php/2011/09/25/how-to-change-boot-order-in-ubuntu-11-04/
Or, you can install a graphical tool like grub-customizer (others available, crawl synaptic), to help you in the process. Some useful info about it can be found here: How do I change the grub boot order?
Hope it helps!
