Ahh so Windows 7 installed its own bootloader and made Ubuntu "disappear."

Try this:

Boot off of Ubuntu Live CD and run the following commands:

sudo grub
grub> root (hd0,0)
grub> setup (hd0)
grub> exit

After that, reboot the computer (take out the CD before it boots) and let us know what happens.

If you just want to boot Ubuntu to get files off it and then use windows, download EasyBCD to windows 7, read its documentation on the website so you know how to create an entry for Ubuntu to boot.
