Which operating system will it by default boot after 10 or so seconds? Ubuntu or Windows?

ok i don't have much experience in this but i tried ubuntu about 6 months ago. back than i had xp too in a ubuntu/7/xp muti boot configuration. at boot time it will show the windows 7 bootloader and when ubuntu is selected it will go to the GRUB loader. i can't surely say that this is gonna happen because it may also have happed because of my XP/7 dual boot config. you Should try it. but i advise you to make a backup.
here is a screenshot of the windows 7 loader.

That doesn't make sense, I don't think there are 2 bootloaders, only 1 can be used, in this case, GRUB2 or Windows bootloader. Thanks for trying Jamal. Anyone know which OS it will on default start after 10sec's?

Um, you must have used Wubi, as default, Ubuntu when installing changes the boot loader from Windows to GRUB2. Can anyone else answer the question?
