You have to decide whose boot loader you want in control. If you want Ubuntu's grub2 in charge you either to do not install the boot loader from the second install, or install it to the PBR or partition boot sector that the second install is in. If it does not let you choose you can easily just reinstall grub2 to the MBR. sudo update-grub should find the other install.
