How to automatically boot from Linux distro to Windows?
I have both Windows 7 and Debian installed on my computer. I thought it would be cool if you could restart your computer, and somehow boot into the other OS. So, instead of rebooting, waiting, picking the "other OS" in GRUB, you could just enter a command, go water your plants or whatever, when you get back, you are where you want to be.
Coolest thing would be if you could give reboot an argument what OS to load next. Possibly, this is not possible for computer architecture reasons?
But then, as a possible workaround, what about changing the GRUB menu, so the "other OS" gets the default slot, and then when you reboot, timeout occurs, you get the default slot (the desired "other OS"), bingo?
99% of the time I'm using Debian so the possibility of a reboot into Windows is what would be most useful to me. But ironically, I almost never reboot Debian -> Debian, Windows 7 on the other hand, I have to reboot all the time. So really, a default Win to Win would be best there.
What do you think? Tell me all about it! Happy New! :)
