You want Windows to boot up automatically??!!!!

Well there is no accounting for taste.  In fact that is one thing that
can be done easily.  Just edit /etc/default/grub and set GRUB_DEFAULT
to the number of windows entry in the boot list.  So if windows is the
7th thing you see in the boot list set it to 7.  Then sudo update-grub
and off you go.  If a new kernel comes along you will have to change
the number though.
