What default setting?, you installed Ubuntu with Wubi?, you want to Make Ubuntu the default OS?.. i'm not sure what you asked here. – Uri Herrera Jul 4 '11 at 5:56

Just click this link. The package "startupmanager" will be installed, and then you will be able to configure default OS boot system from the "system" menu.

I'm asuming you want to dual boot and have ubuntu on its own partition and windows on the other . try looking at this site it gives step by step guide how to do exzactly that! Hope this helps!

Beware you must back up any data that you wish to keep or it will be lost.
