Fedora now uses Grub 2. Whenever it does a kernel upgrade, it loses my default boot option (Windows). How can I fix this?
I resent Grub 2 over this, because the old Grub respected my choices.
Otherwise, what specifically could be placed in the above-mentioned files that would survive kernel upgrades and/or running
This is taken from Fedora's Grub wiki page:
Open /etc/default/grub and ensure this line exists:
Apply the change to grub.cfg by running:
Now list all possible menu entries
Now set the desired default menu entry
Verify the default menu entry
In Fedora you currently can't make this permanently default.
Citation from Fedora wiki:
I don't use fedora, and I'm not 100% sure if the changes will be permanent (after kernel upgrades), but I think you need to edit the file
Where 0 is the first entry of your grub list. Edit it the way you want. Then afterwards, run
Hope this helps!
