You can just restore the XP boot loader with fixMBR.

Or if you cannot find XP cd, you can install lilo's boot loader which works just like windows in looking for a boot partition and jumping to that partition to boot.

Restore basic windows boot loader - universe enabled
Simply open Synaptic and Settings > Repositories and tick the box against the Universe repo in the Ubuntu Software tab.
sudo apt-get install lilo
sudo lilo -M /dev/sda mbr
May show error messages about the rest of lilo missing, ignore, we just want MBR with bootloader.
