Yes, that was lost in attempt to create complete
rescue system that
care of any possible problem that is now
No, that was dropped two releases earlier. It was an option
independent of the rescue system. You had to boot the installation
system, and at the point of choosing install or upgrade, or
thereabouts, there was another option to boot an installed system.
Above will solve boot loader problem.
Problem with single kernel left after update that
doesn't boot should be

You should have a look "down on the forums". Almost every day there is

I can't code.
However, I can help out on the testing.
