2018-04-19 03:14:02 -0500 answered a question Set default boot on dual boot system.

Okay, I kinda got grub-customizer to run. I opened up the terminal, entered su to become root and then simply could call grub-customizer without any error. The grub-customizer also added the line

GRUB_SAVEDEFAU=false

to the /etc/default/grub config, so maybe this was the problem.

Edit: Due to karma missing, I cannot accept my own answer.

Preface

This question has been asked a thousand times, I know, I searched the Internet, but for me, it still didn't work.

Summary

I'm currently sitting on a computer having both Windows 10 and Fedora 27 installed as dual boot. I use Windows for gaming and Fedora for working when I do home office, so I don't need Fedora on this machine that often. The problem is, since I installed Fedora AFTER I installed Windows my machine boots to Fedora per default. I want to change that so that I can boot to Windows.

Configuration

Grub-Customizer

As said before, I searched the Internet and the first answer was to use grub-customizer which isn't possible in the newest version of GNOME IIRC, so that was a solution I couldn't use.

Manually editing /etc/default/grub

Another article state to simply change the GRUB_DEFAULT in the /etc/default/grub file to the correct value. In order to get the correct value I should check the /boot/grub2/grub.cfg and search for the menuentry with Windows. Now there were two options

Setting the default by index

First option was to count the menuentries until the Windows Boot Manager appears starting with 0 (so like an array). Since Windows was the 5th occurence of the menuentry I used GRUB_DEFAULT=4. I saved these settings with sudo grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg, rebooted and.... still booting into Fedora

Setting the default by name

Second option was to just get the name of the menuentry, so in my case Windows Boot Manager (on /dev/sdb2) and put that as the default, so my/etc/default/grub looked like this GRUB_DEFAULT="Windows Boot Manager (on /dev/sdb2)". I executed the grub2-mkconfig command again, rebooted..... still booting into Fedora.

Here's a paste of my /boot/grub2/grub.cfg : https://pastebin.com/fyWE1prf

There must be something I'm doing horribly wrong, but I don't know what it is.

The difference between the spins is simply the desktop environment, right?

Hey, tested it and it worked. Do you want to make this an answer so I can accept this? Thank you very much.

2017-10-22 03:09:15 -0500 asked a question Screen freezing after login on a fresh installed Fedora

Hi,

small backstory: I was using Ubuntu some time ago but hated Unity and switched to Linux Mint and now that Ubuntu 17.10 came with Gnome I wanted to try it out again, but it's still buggy as hell, so I had the choice between switching to Mint again or try sth. else and since I already used Fedora in the past I wanted to give that a try as well. So, here's my SSD configuration currently

Total: 250 GB SSD
220 GB -> Windows 10
30 GB -> Linux partition

This is how I always had it, since I use Linux only for work and Windows for gaming, so I wanted to keep it that way and selected the SSD when installing the project. It was no problem installing it, when I boot my computer I can switch between Fedora and Windows, both start the respectitive operating systems

But now to my problem. As soon as I log in, the screen freezes, I can't move my mouse (dunno if I can press any key-comb) and the only option I have is to reboot my system and boot into Windows. I can't use Fedora right now.

It's not that the whole computer freezes, because I still can press caps lock on my keyboard and the light displaying the active state of caps turns on.

Any idea? Thanks
