How can I repair grub? (How to get Ubuntu back after installing Windows?)

I primarily use Ubuntu 12.10, however I recently installed the beta of Fedora 18 to test it out. Grub was replaced with the "fedora 18 grub" which looks slightly different. How do I restore the version of grub that comes with ubuntu?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

You can still run Ubuntu, yes? Try this one: "sudo grub-install –root-directory=/mnt/ /dev/sda" but w/out quotes and do note change to proper device. The /dev/sda is just an example. –  Marky Dec 4 '12 at 4:46
@Marky can you provide a real answer instead of a comment. It would be better for the OP and the community? –  Ringtail Dec 4 '12 at 5:06

Try update-grub if that doesn't work then install the grub again using the grub-install command . It should detect Ubuntu automatically and include Ubuntu in the boot menu.
