Duel booting with linux and windows

here are the settings to change the bootup order in grub in linux and also to change the utc settings for the clock in linux both using terminal commands (same as windows command promt) when you are using duel boot in windows and linux.

a big update to this thread i have found a linux program for ubuntu/kubuntu that will do the same thing as my post here it is

StartUp-Manager

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/StartUpManager

http://sourceforge.net/projects/startup-manager/

*quote*
The StartUp-Manager interface is composed of 4 sections: Boot Options, Appearance, Security and Advanced. The options in each section will be explained and the corresponding line in menu.lst which is affected by the setting will be shown. Although the grub menu.lst lines are presented, the user does not need to make any changes to the file manually . The lines are presented so that users wishing to see how StartUp-Manager affects menu.lst settings may do so.

hello bare foot kid
yes its ok i have tested it on my system it seems ok read the whole article about it though some of what they show is still under development but for what does work is fine it saves all that work in terminal to change the boot order i stumbled on the program looking for reasons why i cant boot from a live cd since i have had the grub boot up for kubuntu and windows 7 (i have a new hard drive today and i want to download some different linux distros to try on it i mean if i like what i see i would install to the new drive but i cant get them to boot i use the live so if i like em i find its quicker to get the system installed rather than waiting for a large download of the cd/dvd iso you get the updates and pakages so much quicker because you are logged into there servers.)
