Installation type Shows Ubuntu instead of UbuntuGNOME

Bug Description

When installing UbuntuGNOME 13.04 on a disk that already has that image installed. The 'Installation Type' Screen shows

'Reinstall Ubuntu 13.04'
'Install Ubuntu-GNOME 13.04 alongside Ubuntu 13.04'
'Erase Ubuntu 13.04 and reinstall'

The disk contains an image of Ubuntu-GNOME already, not standard Ubuntu flavour. Descriptions are misleading as to what is being installed, or what installation media is being used.

I believe that this is because os-prober is returning "Ubuntu 13.04" and not identifying the installed system as Ubuntu-GNOME.

All ubuntu-flavours install as "ubuntu", there is no way to detect if unity,gnome-shell,kde are installed uniquiely or if multiple sessions are available. Thus all official flavours, once installed report that they are "Ubuntu". I'm not sure if we have master bug for this or not, similarly grub will say that you are booting "Ubuntu" and etc. similar things like uname -a.
