xubuntu 10.04: upgrade kernel + grub

grub2 (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubuntu-docs

After upgrading by automatic upgrade I received a new kernel version: Ubuntu, with Linux 2.6.32-22-generic
However after reboot, my dual boot system does NOT have the windows choice any more and is only able to boot with linux.

This issue repeats on my other system.
Can be solved by manual add the windows part into : /boot/grub/grub.cfg

However this seams NOT to be the right solution. Entrie can be lost again after new updates or after running: update-grub

But for quick solution, updating grup.cfg helps.
Problem can be repeated by installing xubuntu 10.04 and updating the system with patches.
Same problem and luckely some solution. Just save you /boot/grub/grub.cfg file to somewere.
