I had Vista installed on a partition and I installed Ubuntu on the remaining free space.

Now when I boot the computer the OS selection screen is GRUB. Ive used EasyBCD to configure my Vista boot loader. How do I get the computer to use the Vista boot loader when it boots instead of GRUB?

I need to do something in Ubuntu but not sure what!!

Advice appreciated, thanks.

In EasyBCD, select Reinstall the Vista Bootloader then Write MBR. Then in Linux, follow the steps to add Linux to the Vista Bootloader. You need to install Linux onto a hidden bootsector as shown in that guide.

I'd suggest making a backup of the bootloader's settings first.

Here's a set of instructions guiding you through exactly what you want on my blog:

When I boot the computer first, I have two options, nothing else:

Windows Vista Ubuntu 10.04

Optionally, you can set it up like mine. If I don't do anything for 5 seconds, Windows fires up.
