When I enter my boot menu, I see two entries labeled "[ubuntu]" that load exactly the same operating system. The recovery entry is also missing.

I ran Boot Info Script, which typically covers everything I'd ever want to know about my boot configuration, although I'm rather inexperienced in this area, so I don't know where to look:

              Boot Info Script 0.61      [1 April 2012]

Based on your boot info file the recovery entry appears to be there. –  Elder Geek Jul 5 at 23:57
    
I noticed that, but it's not in my boot menu. There are two entries labeled ubuntu. –  Brian Schmitz Jul 7 at 1:03
    
Do you have a submenu entitled 'Advanced options for Ubuntu' –  Elder Geek Jul 7 at 1:42
