LiveCD will not boot

When i pop in the live cd to boot from it gets stuck on the loading screen the one that looks like this:
. . . . .

The dots move until like 2 mins in and then they get stuck and nothing happens i let it sit for like 30 mins.

The reason im using the cd is i already have installed ubuntu but then i installed windows xp on another partition and so im trying to get the grub back using the livecd.

Please help.

You should be able to use the super grub2 disk to boot into ubuntu so you can then reinstall grub-pc to the mbr.
