You will have to repair the Grub bootloader and for that you will have to boot from a Ubuntu Live CD. From the Live CD, just open terminal and run the below commands:

Code:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:yannubuntu/boot-repair
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install -y boot-repair
boot-repair
After that a window will pop-up, here just use Recommended repair option.

The live cd that you have downloaded from the ubuntu website comes in the Iso format which you need to burn as a bootable disc. But depending upon the system that you have, whether its windows 7 32 bit or 64 bit, or other amd or intel machine, you have to download the proper version for same. You can find the ubuntu releases from this website - http://releases.ubuntu.com/12.04/
