Problem with wrong boot sequence

Postby Photon on Fri Mar 08, 2013 10:10 am

Hi I have eventually loaded Linux Mint14. However I had destroyed teh boot sequence for Win7. When I eventually got to the point of getting Linux workin the C drive boot MBR had dissapeared. I chose the wrong Windows partition and ended up installing the boot on sda2 not sda1. Is there a way I can change this or move the boot on my Windows to sda1? Also I want to change the boot sequence and can't see how to do this? As always looking forward to your replies and thank you for reading this. Maybe one day I can suffient in knowledge to help others but with the amount of morphine I take that maybe in another lifetime

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Try to update the grub;

Code: Select all
sudo update-grub


Reboot and search by windows line to start it.

You can install grub-customizer to change boot sequence, etc
