I'm surprised that Windows was missing from the grub menu. I haven't had that happen in the many dual-boot laptops I've installed.

What laptop do you have? Over the last couple of weeks installing about 20 different new laptops, I was able how to make Fedora boot first in all of them.

I know you said that. I was just surprised that it happened in the first place.

You can get to the boot menu by pressing F9 repeatedly as soon as you see the backlight come on. Make sure that Fedora is in the list, then you can press F10 to get into the BIOS.

Go to the boot settings section. Go down to the boot order and hit enter on the OS Boot Manager entry. You should have two options in there, Windows and Fedora. Make sure the Fedora one is on top using the F5 or F6 keys. F10 to save, then exit the BIOS with saving.

Please include more details in your response. Does the F9 boot selection menu show Fedora? Where are you hitting enter that isn't "showing os option"?

at os boot manager entry, no os selection

Please be more specific and detailed! Do you mean the F9 boot menu or the BIOS boot order configuration? "no os selection" can't be right. There will be at least the Windows option. So do you mean that the Fedora entry isn't there?
