Hi Basavaraj,

First determine how many entries you have on you boot screen. To change default boot entry and boot timeout login to you ubuntu system and edit:

/boot/grub/grub.cfg

file.

Change time out by altering line:

set timeout=5

the above will set timeout to 5 seconds.
Change default boot option by altering line:

set default="1"

the above will default to boot second entry on your boot list.

Once you have made changes you need apply them by:

$ sudo update-grub

command.

Hope this helps

Lubos
