I installed unbuntu from a live CD in order to save some data from the windows OS previously installed on my computer. Now I've reinstalled windows, but I don't see the grub menu, in order to choose which OS to run.

Does anyone knows how can I have access to that menu and later to the ubuntu OS already installed?

You mean GRUB? Ubuntu comes with GRUB and not LILO.

Anyway, here is a documentation on how to install GRUB2 from a Live-CD, and if you're really using LILO, the steps should be identical, except that you have to install LILO instead of GRUB.

your right, not lilo, it's about grub, but how to install it on my machine from a live CD? – dole doug Mar 5 '10 at 13:21
