HI all,
So I used to have ubuntu and vista on my machine, using grub to dual boot. Recently I installed Windows 7 on the partition which had vista on it. The installation must have messed with my boot sequence, as the grub is no longer being used and the machine goes straight to windows. Anyone know how I could get my grub back and be able to dual boot again?

Maybe I should clarify, I'm looking for a way to tell Windows 7 to boot the computer from a disk partition which windows isn't on. Any advice would be appreciated :)
