Fedora Core "No, Fedora 13 Linux is not coming out today. The release was pushed back by a week to fix a number of blocker bugs, among them is an interesting one that many users might simply consider to be just a papercut nuisance."

I'm newer to Linux. How would one boot to Windows without the boot menu?


As far as I remember the problem was not a missing boot menu - but zero timeout during which you can choose what OS (Fedora, Windows) to boot.
By default, Fedora installer was supposed to detect that there is an existing installation, and automatically put the non-zero menu display time.

Anyone hit by this bug, could simply boot into Linux, edit the /etc/grub.conf file, and replace the timeout=0 with timeout=<insert_your_preferred_timeout_here>.
