Lost my dual boot Win7 and Ubuntu in new install

I have a Windows 7 / Ubuntu machine and was trying out a linux PBX system from Digium called "Switchbox". Without notice, the install wiped out any access I might have thru grub and now the only boot menu I have is PBX Server. I booted with GParted and I see one small partition and a large one with an exclamation point and "Unknown" title. Any advice on how to get my old system back?
