Bug Description

Wubi on Ubuntu now only displays the 2 memtest options in grub2 on ubuntu.
The memtest options don't actually do anything either as they point to, I'm assuming, where they would be either on the cd or first harddrive partition and not in the loop system of wubi.

20090922 iso was used for this report.

I've fixed the fact that only the memtest items are showing up, but not yet the fact that they're broken. It may be best to remove them for Karmic if we don't have time to fix them ...

lupin (0.24) karmic; urgency=low

  * Call update-grub on lupin-support installation. This is needed for fresh
    Wubi installs, since lupin-support is installed after grub-installer

  * Don't emit grub2 menu items if /boot is on a loop-mounted device (e.g.
    Wubi; LP: #435153).
