Booting to Windows 7 from Ubuntu on my dual-boot machine


I have 2 OS on my machine: Ubuntu 10.4 and Windows 7.
I wish to boot directly to Windows 7, without having the boot menu and without the need to select Windows 7 from the boot menu.
Which command can help me to do that?

So you don't want to be able to run linux then?

If you want windows to directly start, boot using a windows install cd for the version currently installed, choose recovery console, select the correct install and use bootsect/.. to rewrite your mbr.

In the grub configuration, make Windows the default, and then set a very short timeout.
