Bug Description

Using the 20120925 beta2 image of quantal-amd64-desktop, I installed using the default "erase everything and install quantal" option.

Reboot from the install cd, restart the install process, the only options that show up are:
* Erase Ubuntu quantal and reinstall
  - Encrypt the new Ubuntu installation for security
  - Use LVM with the new Ubuntu installation
* Something else

There should be another option for "Reinstall Ubuntu quantal" according to the design specifications I've seen.
