Generally speaking, which one is the easiest and/or safest if time is an issue 
and you want to things fast and streamlined doing this, grub-install or backup 
and restore MBR. That is assuming I don't screw up when I do either and 
mistype or something.

Or are both things different sides of the same coin kinda' thing?
