I am writing this post cause after upgrading the Ubuntu kernel I have to change OS boot order agin. I don’t want to do this again and again after every kernel update.
Workaround is change the boot order in /etc/grub.d/ folder. Run following command in ubuntu,

mv /etc/grub.d/30_os-prober /etc/grub.d/06_os-prober

Then update grub,


Again this will not work if you are having more than one other OS. In such scenario you need to edit /etc/default/grub and change the GRUB_DEFAULT value so that it matches the OS you want.
