linux/grub blocked

about last month i've tried to install windows after i installed linux(pclos2007). when i finished installing windows, its said that another os was deactivated/blocked. then when i installing drivers and restart, i dont see any boot options/grub. the question is, how can i reactivating/unblocking linux/grub so i dont have to reinstall it (linux) anymore? and also, if i have three os (windows, linux, mac), which one would be installed 1st, 2nd, and last? tx for replies

You do not need to re-install Linux. It's still there. When you re-installed Windows, it wrote the Windows bootloader to the MBR and disabled grub.
