I would try the following: Install Ubuntu newly (normal install) side by side to your windows wubi OS. Than you should be able to get the grub menu with the option to boot into windows. Afterwards you could use Easy BCD to recover the windows MBR and delete the fresh Ubuntu install.

Download bootrepair for ubuntu. Use "Recommended" repair option. When it is done use EasyBCD to put back winOS in charge.

These tools are simple to use but can also mess up your computer if you don't know how to use them.
