    per meierfra. mbr.bin may cause problems in some cases better to use lilo
    Restore basic windows boot loader - universe enabled from Ubuntu or liveCD
    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

    The windows way is fixMBR or Vista/7 BootRec.exe /fixmbr from windows repair screens.
