You can use boot-repair

Insert your Ubuntu live (desktop) CD or flash drive, reboot your computer from CD/Flash drive into a live, desktop session.

Install and run Boot-Repair

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:yannubuntu/boot-repair
sudo apt-get update 
sudo apt-get install -y boot-repair
gksu boot-repair

Click "Recommended repair" -> apply.
