You use the Ubuntu Live CD to reinstall Grub. It will scan and detect all other OS's and add them to the boot menu. See the Ubuntu help docs

is that possible within windows 7? – Jichao Oct 29 '10 at 11:27
I doubt it, it's testament to Windows not playing too nice with others. I had to do this a while back, I learned a lot from doing it! – invert Nov 3 '10 at 7:41
