Lost my dual boot bootloader

I am running Fedora 20/Ubuntu Studio on my laptop. Both were coexisting fine and on reboots I got the bootloader menu to choose my OS. I just ran updates on Ubuntu studio and now whenever it reboots (restart or from a full shut down) , it just boots back into Ubuntu Studio with no option to pick Fedora boot. Is there a way to repair that without wiping out data?

Boot to Ubuntu. Open a terminal and run the command "sudo update-grub" to re-write the grub config file which will then show Ubuntu and Fedora in the familiar grub menu when you reboot.

Open up the terminal and try using

sudo os-prober
Watch the output to see if your installtion is found. If it is, run:

sudo update-grub
