    I don't think you can. You are likely using a Linux-based boot loader, so that's the interface you'll see.

    Unless you have some unique hardware that needs Linux access, my suggestion would be to update your methods to a virtual machine. Only in unique situations does a person need to multi-boot anymore. You could run Windows native on the laptop, then run Ubuntu in a VM, using something like VMWare Player. One distinct advantage is, you don't need to reboot to switch OSes, as you can use them both at once.

    Because you are dual booting. Grub will always be in control. There is a guide over at the forum, do what you want to do.
