    Fire up a terminal, and enter the following command to install StartUp-Manager.
    sudo apt-get install startupmanager
    Enter your password, hit ‘Y’ at the prompt, and let it install.

    Once that’s finished, go to System > Administration > StartUp-Manager

    Using the "EasyBCD" Program
    1. If you have not already, download and install a free version of the EasyBCD program, then run it.
    NOTE: The free version download is at the bottom under "Download free for limited, non-commercial use". Registration is not required to download.

    2. Click on the Edit Boot Menu button, then check the box for the OS that you want to be the default OS to start in the Windows Boot Manager. (see screenshot below)
    3. When finished, close EasyBCD.

    Re: What is the procedure to change the default OS in Windows Boot Loader?

    Right now I know two ways to do this type of task,
    First method, I want to explain you by giving a link. Just open it and understand yourself. Here is a link :-
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WqZslyqLHKY

    Second method is,
    1) Click start -> run -> msconfig
    or directly right msconfig.exe after clicking start
    2) click on "Boot". If there are two or more windows already installed. Click one of them and select "set as default" option and click apply then "ok"

    Here you go....
    You can check it by restarting your computer.....
