    System boots automatically into windows


    I'm dual-booting Fedora Linux with windows7 and everything worked fine until now. My problem now is that I did an upgrade on my windows and ever since,
    My system boots into windows automatically without giving me the option
    to choose which operating system to boot to via the GRUB prompt.
    I'm locked out of my Fedora by windows.
    I need help urgently.

    login in fedora and chose administration > bootloader > select your default bootloader is fedora and change time out as required in second .
    Take risks: if you win, you will be happy; if you lose, you will be wise.

    If you are not getting the Grub menu and are booting directly to windows 7, you can re-install Grub for Fedora with the Fedora Installation/Live CD. If you don't know how to do that, re-post and post partition info you get from the Live CD terminal command as root: fdisk -l (Lower Case Letter L in command). Someone will be able to advise you.
