You need to reinstall your bootloader from within a linux live CD. You can follow the "Grub Booting Tips" in my signature -- specifically either B3 or B5 depending on if you use grub or lilo.

What distro are you running?

You can use any live CD. It appears Ultimate is based on Ubuntu and should therefore be a live CD. Just pop the CD in the drive and boot into the live environment.
