I was following this guide: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/ubuntu/set-windows-as-default-os-when-dual-booting-ubuntu/ in order to make windows the default os when I boot the computer but the problem is that the file which opens when I run the commend which manshened in the text is empty and dosn't have any of the lines it should have according to the guide so can anybody help and tell me how to see the text or give another way of making windows 7 the default os?
you can do it yourself :
gksudo gedit /etc/default/grub
This file contains information formerly contained in the upper section of Grub Legacy's menu.lst and items contained on the end of the kernel line. The items in this file can be edited by a user with administrator (root) privileges.
GRUB_DEFAULT - Sets the default menu entry. Entries may be numeric
- GRUB_DEFAULT=0 - Sets the default menu entry by menu position. As Grub Legacy, the first "menuentry" in /boot/grub/grub.cfg is 0, the second is 1, etc.
after that do that :
