Grub Loader Edit.

Recommended Posts

Here is my grub loader, I want to make some changes. I want to remove all the different builds of Ubuntu and just have the latest one. I want to make it so MY XP is the top one on the list so if someone reboots it will default after the time stops to go into xp.

# menu.lst - See: grub(8), info grub, update-grub(8)

# grub-install(8), grub-floppy(8),

# grub-md5-crypt, /usr/share/doc/grub

# and /usr/share/doc/grub-doc/.

## default num

# Set the default entry to the entry number NUM. Numbering starts from 0, and

# the entry number 0 is the default if the command is not used.

#

# You can specify 'saved' instead of a number. In this case, the default entry

# is the entry saved with the command 'savedefault'.

# WARNING: If you are using dmraid do not use 'savedefault' or your

# array will desync and will not let you boot your system.

default 0

## timeout sec

# Set a timeout, in SEC seconds, before automatically booting the default entry

# (normally the first entry defined).

timeout 10

## hiddenmenu

# Hides the menu by default (press ESC to see the menu)

#hiddenmenu

# Pretty colours

#color cyan/blue white/blue

## password ['--md5'] passwd

# If used in the first section of a menu file, disable all interactive editing

# control (menu entry editor and command-line) and entries protected by the

# command 'lock'

# e.g. password topsecret

# password --md5 $1$gLhU0/$aW78kHK1QfV3P2b2znUoe/

# password topsecret

Here is my grub loader, I want to make some changes. I want to remove all the different builds of Ubuntu and just have the latest one.

Removing the kernel packages should remove the entries. If it doesn't, just delete the ones you don't want.

I want to make it so MY XP is the top one on the list so if someone reboots it will default after the time stops to go into xp.

Move the XP block above "BEGIN AUTOMAGIC KERNELS LIST".

Do I move all of this:

# This entry automatically added by the Debian installer for a non-linux OS

# on /dev/sdb1

title Microsoft Windows XP Professional

root (hd0,0)

savedefault

makeactive

chainloader +1

Or just this part:

title Microsoft Windows XP Professional

root (hd0,0)

savedefault

makeactive

chainloader +1
