Windows 7: Changing bootmgr

Changing bootmgr

Hey, I'm dual booting Windows 7 and Ubuntu, and I'm curious if there's a way for Windows 7 to automatically startup without the select OS screen at the beginning, and if I want to boot up Ubuntu to hit some key when it's booting (like pressing F8 to start Safe Mode).

There's probably a billion reasons that I don't know about as to why it won't work, but I figured it was worth asking anyway.

Hello Fireicee1, welcome to Seven Forums!


If you are using separate Hard Disk Drives and not just separate partitions for each OS, you could use the BIOS managed dual boot instead of a Windows/Grub managed dual boot.
