It’s been twice my OS boot selection been removed after installing Crunchbang Linux (based on Debian Squeeze). After search on Google, I found this link (although it was meant for ubuntu, but it works fine on me)

grub

Maybe that tutorial a little bit hard to novice user. I found another simple way to do this.

  1. Run your favorite console & Install OS Prober program by typing this:
    sudo apt-get install os-prober
  2. running it using console
    sudo os-prober
  3. Update your grub by run this command
    sudo update-grub

Reboot and it should fix your OS boot selection menu.

PS: if you run sudo command, you’ll be promt to enter your administrator password.
