The reason you can't see the bootloader menu (which was most likely grub) is because Windows automatically overwrites the MBR (master boot record) with its own Windows bootloader upon installation. Currently the Windows bootloader cannot detect/boot Linux.
As casper said, you'll have to reinstall grub to the MBR.10" Sony Vaio SRX99P 850MHz P3-M 256MB RAM 20GB HD : ArchLinux
