How to change boot sequence between Windows and Linux

Published on December 01, 2004

NOTE: This is a very outdated page. The future version will contain Grub.

Switching from Lilo to NTFS boot loader

Login as root and edit /etc/lilo.conf:

su
emacs /etc/lilo.conf

If you use any other editor, use it instead of emacs. Insert the line:

default=windows

First make sure you have the following lines in your lilo.conf:

other = /dev/hda1
label = windows

After that, effect the changes by entering:

lilo

That should set Windows as the default boot loader and start Windows by default.
