Important: It is assumed here that you installed Novell Linux Desktop 9 or SUSE Linux Professional 9.3 after Windows and that you are using grub as your boot loader.

Note: Even though this procedure was done under Novell Linux Desktop 9, it is the same procedure for SUSE Linux Professional 9.3.

  • Launch Yast2 and go to System | Boot Loader Configuration. Go down to Available Sections and click Edit.


  • Highlight the Windows section and click the Set as Default button. If you want to move it up in the list, you can click the up button to make it first in the list. Click OK to finish and then restart your computer. Once you get to the boot screen you should see the new changes.
