Boot Repair Tool Will Added by Default in Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr
Boot Repair is one such tool specially designed to recover booting a Linux system in case of failure to install another operating system such as Windows and the Microsoft proprietary system is usually quite demanding in terms of system boot and often generated errors if there are other Linux systems previously installed or is not properly configured.
According to the developers Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty LTS will be installed for at least two years by millions of users who may experience problems with the bootloader caused either by UEFI EFI etc.. Boot-Repair would be able to solve these problems by starting from the distribution of live-DVD or on the first boot of Ubuntu.”
The proposal is under discussion, then it’s up to Canonical decide whether or not to introduce Boot Repair by default in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Trusty Tahr.
According to the description of this tool Launchpad presents the following characteristics:

- Repair the most common boot problems very easily
- Small graphical tool to restore access to Ubuntu and other operating systems (especially Windows which is causing more problems with regard to dual boot.)
- Very useful in live sessions (when the boot disk is broken) so what is very important to include it in the ISO’s installation
- Is currently used by over 1,000 users of Ubuntu, which indicates that it is a necessary tool.
- It has been reviewed by many mentors Debian Linux.
- It takes developers so that it can be uploaded to the repository of Debian / Ubuntu.
