duel boot problem

Recommended Posts

hopefully this is an easy one.

when the screen comes up to select the which OS you want i cannot go up or down. and after the count down it automatically goes to Linux.

why can i not pick the OS i want and how do i change it so the windows would be the default OS

so is there anyway to fix it. i dont want to be using linux all the time. im starting to like linux, but windows has all my stuff on it.

You should be ok, but fix it? Once you install that thing , it's on. I just would like to know what options you have on the screen, are there different build numbers, and the windows option, stuff like that?

i did some testing. i didnt think that this was going to be the problem but i think it is. I am using a wireless mouse and keyboard. when i plugged in a wired keyboard it worked just fine. i threw this out early because i could get to my bios screen with it. i wonder why the keyboard does not work during the boot screen

Ok go to to your add remove programs. Search the word start. In the settings section you should see the word start-up manager. If its not installed install it please. Then go to your system settings and find Start-up manager. Open it and edit your settings as you wish.

On you keyboad you should be able to select the os you want with the up and down arrows. Hope that helps.
