Question Win 7 Boot Manager - Add Linux back on

Hello All,

I have Ubuntu 10.04 and Win 7 installed on my comp. When I had to reimage the comp (I had Grub installed as the default boot loader) Win 7 obviously removed the Grub and did not installed the boot loader so I can't get back into Ubuntu. Does anyone know how to manage the Win 7 boot manager and what commands I would have to type in ( or even how to load the damn thing for that matter) Sorry, never played with Boot Manager much. Or is there a free boot loader program I could install?

Any suggestions are appreciated! Thanks

P.S. I know that I can throw in an Ubuntu live CD and install Grub, but I would rather not have Grub installed. That's more of a last resort.

Thanks again.

I know of a guy that uses EasyBCD through Windows. Give that a try and see if that works.
