Default Re: Dual boot problem.

Press WIndows Key + R at the same time to bring up the Run dialog. Type in: msconfig and press Enter.

Go to the Boot tab.

Select the OS that you want to be the default and press the Set Default button. If you want to increase the timeout, you can do so on the right-side of the window as well.

Press OK.
