How to put back grub

Hi,
That is because windows replaced your bootloader.
There are many articles on how to put back your grub.
Following link gives a good step by step instruction. If you google you will get many more.

Post back if you get stuck somewhere.
All the best

Reinstall your boot loader. Google is your friend. Also youtube.com has some stuff on grub as well if you search it.

Boot into an Ubuntu live disc and follow instructions on Google and you should be good to go.

Something like

sudo grub-install /dev/sdX

should do, where X is youre drive letter, a for 1st drive, b for 2nd etc
