In order to help you need to post your menu.lst file.

You can find this into /boot/grub/menu.lst

Use the following command to edit it:

sudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst

From your Live CD, open a terminal (applications > accessories > terminal), and do:

sudo fdisk -lu
Post the results of that, and also figure which is your Ubuntu partition in the form sdXY (like sda2 or similar) by noticing which partition is "linux" under the "system" category, and then use that as follows:

sudo mount /dev/sdXY /mnt
cat /mnt/boot/grub/menu.lst
The above should give us enough info to help you get Grub working again.
