No Startup Manager for Mint 14?

Postby ruddy on Fri Jan 18, 2013 11:56 pm

What happened to the startup manager in version 14? It was available in Mints 11 through 13. Sometimes I prefer to boot into Windows as the default.

You can use Grub Customizer.

To change defauly option you need edit grub files (in /boot/grub/grub.cfg; /etc/default/grub), it is little hard, but Daniel Ritcher make the hard work and release Grub-Customizer , the easy way to customize grub.

To install it:

Code: Select all
            sudo add-apt-repository ppa:danielrichter2007/grub-customizer
            sudo apt-get update
            sudo apt-get install grub-customizer



Open grub customizer, look at the first tab (entries) you will be all the OS installed, Linuxmint, recovery, memtest, windows,

If you want you can delete recovery, memtest entries keeping only LM and windows entries.

Open second tab, there you will can change default option.

Explore the othwers tabs; you can put a backgropund on window boot, etc

Save.

Close.

Reboot.

Done.
