Dear All,

I have a convertible touch netbook running Windows 8 and Android ICS (i86) as a Dual-boot using GRUB.

I want to change the GRUB menu.lst so as to default to Windows boot.

I can't see GRUB in the Android Linux folder / files so I have tried several Windows apps to access the ext3 partition.
Unfortunately, these are read / save only, so even though I have altered the Menu.lst file I cannot write the new Menu.lst back to the ext3 partition.

Any ideas, anyone ?

OK, now.

I ran Ubuntu 12.04 from a USB stick and then, with a terminal window, I used sudo gedit menu.lst to alter the menu.lst and save it..
So Windows 8 is now the default
