I used grub customizer to change my grub boot menu but I unticked the "new entries" for linux and now I'm posting this from a livecd (WAY faster then my windows insall) any suggestions on what to do?

Why don't you use a live CD and reinstall the GRUB?

I tried this but it didn't do anything

ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo update-grub
/usr/sbin/grub-probe: error: cannot find a device for / (is /dev mounted?).
