i have an headless server on which i need to boot windows too (i can control
that via vnc, or even cygwin and ssh)

problem is i need at every reboot to automatically select different default
boot entry, that means i boot server it default boots windows, i reboot it
then it boots linux, i reboot it again, it boots windows and so on

with lilo i could do that using fallback option, on grub, the default boot
entry only change to fallback if the default one fails ... and that's not
the case here

can you please help me ?
The grub-reboot utility may do what you want, and if not it should be
fairly simple to get what you want using grub's scripting capabilities
(grub 1.98 and up. grub legacy, 0.97, is no longer supported if that
is what you are using). Are you writing your grub.cfg manually or
using update-grub/grub-mkconfig?

thank you for answer, i don't really know grub atm, i'm gonna learn it ... some time ^^

i did solved the problem by changing active partition in linux and windows and using grub in boot of linux partition and not in mbr of hdd

again, thank you :)
