Hi. Need help. A friend told me Ubunta was the greatest program since sliced bread However since installing on my laptop It's been a pain ever since first it will load first in case I don't catch it when the option comes up even then it I have to have a 3-4 goes before the computer get the idea I want Vista. Would rather dump ubunta altogether than hove these problems.
How do I get priority on Vista or get rid of unbunta

You should get ten seconds to choose which operating system you wish to boot. If you need to change GRUB to make windows boot first, there are many tutorials to help you to do just that. Is that what you wish to do, or do you want to remove Ubuntu?
It's nice to be important, it's much more important to be nice.

v123 install this program
follow the directions let me know if you need help

http://www.webupd8.org/2010/10/grub-customizer-lets-you-reorder-add-or.html

once install run it note it will ask you for your password

after it starts chick on preferences
under visibility set time out to 999 seconds
then click on save on the main upper menu
that is it that way when grub starts it will give you 999 seconds to choose what you want to boot into
you dont have to wait that long just click on which one you want and boot into
if you dont like the 999 seconds you can reset to whatever you want

Here's a very easy way, that I used on my XP Pro/Ubuntu machine.

yup keith1 that is a good way also. just thought that he might want to have the grub menu be visible until he wanted to select what os to load
