Open the bios (Normally your delete key) and set the boot order to begin with your Ubuntu hard drive. When grub loads and offers a few ubuntu options, pick Ubuntu -(Recovery mode). A menu should load up, select update grub and hopefully that should allow you to select windows or Ubuntu at the grub menu rather than having to worry about the bios.
