    I was using grub to dual boot Windows XP and Ubuntu, when my dad had to reinstall Windows. Grub no longer starts at startup. How do I get it back so I can dual boot again?

    Yip, when you install windows over linux the windows bootloader overrides your MBR destroying GRUB, unfortunately the windows bootloader isn't very linuxfriendly, anyway:

    You can download the supergrubCD, it will install GRUB again...
