What version of Ubuntu are you using?

If you are using 9.04 or earlier, you will need to restore grub. See here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=224351

9.10 uses grub2, which needs a different approach. See here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1295297

When you upgraded to Windows 7, Windows overwrote grub; hence, you have to put it back in.
