This page documents how to restore or recover the boot-loader after
installing Windows. Ubuntu uses the Grub boot-loader; refer to the
GrubHowto or Grub2 for more information on Grub. Some reasons to
repair your boot-loader might include installing Microsoft Windows
after you have installed Ubuntu, adding or removing a hard drive, or
changing hard drive settings.

Note: These instructions provide multiple options. Pick the option
which works best for you; otherwise, choose recommended option.
