Bug Description

One comme question asked by people that are new in the Ubuntu community is :

"I've reinstalled Windows, how can I have my dual boot again ?"

The LiveCd must provide an option at boot to easily restore grub.
This option must be well labeled (something like : "restore my dual boot") and easily discoverable.

I believe they are currently working on something similar for Feisty.

There was no such option for Feisty. I wonder if we can hope for this useful feature to appear in Gutsy (or maybe Gutsy+1).
