I had installed garuda on my windows 10 already installed machine but couldn't set up grub option to make windows 10 default boot os. I want to reinstall garuda but how can I adjust grub to boot to windows default . I need it for certain reasons . Any help? Thanks.
You need this:
GRUB_DEFAULT to a number, which is the main menu option line, starting from
If Windows is 5th menu entry, set this to /etc/default/grub
Thanks. I tried it with the application offered by the os but when I tried to save the setting it didn't save the option. Oddly enough, other settings such as boot menu time out are saved but not grub default.
Is there a way to do this on terminal typing commands? I tried manjaro commands but apparently there are some differences.
Did you forget to
grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
after making changes to
It happens to the best of us
No but how can I edit grub with command line first? Manjaro commands that I used before didn't work.
Which manjaro commands did you use?
Use a terminal text editor, like
joe or one of the million other terminal text editors out there), with
sudo... Or a GUI text editor with polkit support like Kate (without
sudo, of course).
sudo nano /etc/default/grub
These worked on Manjaro
And which one does not work now?
The first one? Do you have
nano installed? If not run:
pacman -S nano
The second one? The command I posted above is the same as
update-grub (it's just a script on manjaro that runs that exact command).
Doesn't Garuda Boot Options allow to boot to Windows? Sorry, I don't dual boot, but I do see an option called Boot to and assume that it also lists Windows.
@Kresimir , yes nano command was the problem. I'll try your suggestion when I get home. Thanks.
I have very little knowledge of linux and commands for now.
Replace nano with micro. So the command is
sudo micro /etc/default/grub
Also, you can manually go to /etc/default/grub using file manager
Terminal commands worked. Thanks
