    Arrow [Boot-Repair] Graphical tool to repair the PC boot in one click

    "Boot-Repair" is a small graphical tool to repair frequent boot problems.

    - repair the boot when an OS does not boot any more after installing Ubuntu
    - repair the boot when access to GRUB and any OS is lost (maybe due to a Windows software that wrote into the MBR gap, or a OEM MBR lock),
    - reinstall GRUB bootloader easily
    - create a Boot Info Summary in 1 click !
    - restore a generic bootsector (MBR), or the original MBR if it has been saved by Clean-Ubiquity

    Get a CD including Boot-Repair:
    - Boot-Repair-Disk is a CD that automatically runs Boot-Repair at start-up.
    - or: Boot-Repair is also included in all Linux Secure disks.

    Install and run Boot-Repair in Ubuntu (in case you can't burn a CD):
    just type in a Terminal:

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:yannubuntu/boot-repair
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install -y boot-repair && (boot-repair &)
    Boot-Repair can be installed & used from any Ubuntu session (normal session, or live-CD, or live-USB).
    PPA packages are available for Ubuntu versions precise(12.04LTS), trusty(14.04LTS), utopic(14.10), vivid(15.04).

    Use Boot-repair:
    Launch it from System->Administration->Boot-Repair menu if you use Gnome, or search "boot" in the dash if you use Unity. Then follow the menus...

    You can contribute by :

    - translating (now ~60 languages)
    - voting on Launchpad for these bugs: 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th
    - suggesting improvements
