Boot the LiveCD, install Boot Repair, and allow it to fix things for you. If it can't fix it, at least you will be able to run the boot info script from Boot Repair. Post the contents or link to the file it generates and we'll be able to give you informed advice.

There's a link to Boot Repair in my signature line.
