Hi @sulaiman, and welcome!

I’ve never done it myself, but according to this post, it’s quite easy:

Setting the default booting entry in grub

The quick method: download the grub-select.bash and run

$ bash grub-select.bash

and choose the boot entry.

Following is the manual way.

In grub (before version 2, actually it is usually version 0.99), the default entry is stored in /boot/grub/grub.conf. The default entry to boot is specified by the ‘default’ variable such >as


The ‘2’ here is to set the default entry to be the 2nd (start from 0) one.

Update on Apr. 29, 2015: updated posts with support to both BIOS and UEFI based Linux systems; suggest the grub2-regen-cfg.bash script for re-generating grub2 config file.

Hope it helps!
