To restore GRUB, I think you have to type this into the terminal:

sudo grub-install /dev/sda

Where /dev/sda is your hard drive.

Does it mean that Grub does not get wiped out after Burg? – Gaurav Butola Oct 26 '10 at 14:29
Not automatically, but I personally purge it (with sudo apt-get purge grub) because of I'm happy with burg – Extender Oct 26 '10 at 14:58

Burg Manager is an application to easily install Burg (along with the default Burg themes and a Burg emulator) and change most of the Burg settings such as the timeout, download and install new themes, remove Burg and restore Grub 2, set the default operating system and many advanced options.

you can get it from here
