Neogrub-Boot os based on time of day

#1
This sounds impossible, and I haven't found a way to do it yet, but is there any way to check the time of day, and boot into a certain os based on that. EX.

Before 13:00
windows
13:00-0:00
ubuntu

You can, BUT it's not that simple.

Add both to EasyBCD. Set Windows as the default.

Download and install iReboot 2.0 in Windows.
Run a program immediately on startup in Windows (add to autostart) that will check the time and if it's between 1300 and 0000 it will call iReboot from the commandline and tell it to boot into Ubuntu.

(iReboot is an application that can boot your PC into a pre-determine OS)

Addendum:

btw - from your username I take it your from the Windy City, too? GO BLACKHAWKS! :grinning:

Interesting idea there.
Don't know why I didn't think of it. :smile:

Probably because you don't need to boot into a particular OS based on the time of the day :lol:

As they say, "Necessity is the mother of invention."
I actually made EasyBCD out of necessity :smile:
