Using Windows Boot Manager or GRUB for Windows(Vista)-Linux system October 30, 2009

Posted by viboon in : MS Windows, Ubuntu , add a comment

By installing more than one OS, boot loader will play a significant role to assist and manage the system booting. Basically, the type of applied boot loader follows the last installed OS. For instance, GRUB will take place when Ubuntu is installed after Windows, and Windows Boot Manager will be vice versa. However, we can change the boot loader to be the one we want without reinstalling the OS(s) in a proper sequence. Clearly, only boot loader will be reinstalled separately into the Mater-boot record (MBR).

This article will give you the procedure to reinstall the boot loader which is no matter what OS is installed before or last.
