    If it's vista you could use easybcd http://neosmart.net/dl.php?id=1. The download button for easybcd is at the bottom of the page.

    Or reinstall grub from the live cd as windows will have nuked the mbr with it's own bootloader.

    if you want to create a dual boot system it's good practice to make your windows partition the boot partition i.e. on a formatted hard drive, install windows first, then pop in your live cd and boot from it, and install ubuntu on a seperate partition.
