Boot option not working


Running Vista and recently d/l Linux 10.04 with Vista default.

Want to make linux default but when I go to startup manager and select Linux and reboot Vista remains the default.

Linux 10.04? What distribution are you using?

And you need to configure your bootloader; Are you using grub as the bootloader, or something else?

No, you need to mark your thread at the top within the thread tools.
