I have dual booted my netbook with windows 8 pro and ubuntu 13.04.

i do not like grub and think the windows 8 bootloader is a lot more clean and sharp.

Is there a way to use the windows bootloader instead of the horrible sticky looking grub?

Please Help!


Yes, you can use (in Windows) EasyBCD - a Windows tool that allows you to create a multi boot environment in order to run multiple operating systems on the same computer.

After you fix Windows boot loader, when you will go in Ubuntu, Grub will appear anyway. To prevent this, you must to edit /etc/default/grub file (sudo gedit /etc/default/grub) and make GRUB_TIMEOUT=0:

edit grub

Run sudo update-grub afterwards to update /boot/grub/grub.cfg.
