You can do this post install. Open /boot/grub/menu.lst in a text editor with root privileges e.g.
- Code: Select all
gksudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst
Scroll down to the line that says "End Default Options". Now count the number of lines starting with "title" before you get to the one with windows in it (which should be under the line that says "END DEBIAN AUTOMAGIC KERNELS LIST". For instance, you probably have 4 lines beginning with title, with the last one being windows, thus the number you're after is 3. Then you need to find the line higher up in the file which says "default 0" and change the 0 to the number you just counted to. This will set the default boot to windows, and you have to actively change it in the menu to boot to mint.
