    ubuntu 11.10 not booting..

    hi all,

    I am using ubuntu 11.10 along with windows7 previously I can boot to any of the OS.

    Now I am unable to boot ubuntu, only windows is booting.
    lastly when windows is booting it asked for checkdisk and I continued(it deleted some 2 files) from that moment I am unable to boot Ubuntu.
    In C: drive I have windows
    in E: I have ubuntu

    In either of these locations I can't find nothing(menu.lst)
    E:\ubuntu\disks\boot\grub\
    E:\ubuntu\install\boot\grub\

    main problem is I don't have CD drive to reinstall.
    but i have the copy of the CD in my windows pc.
    if anybody share their 11.10 menu.lst if i copied to these locations will it work.


    any idea??

    plz help...

    It sounds like Windows overwrote the mbr.
