    Welcome to Ask Ubuntu! New questions about end-of-life Ubuntu releases are considered off-topic as per the help center. These old releases are unsupported and their use is not recommended. They don't even get updates for newly discovered security vulnerabilities, which makes using them risky. If you install or upgrade to a supported release and this question still applies, please flag and/or comment to request it be reopened. – Dan Jan 30 '14 at 9:08

If you can get into your linux then you can install boot-repair in your linux machine.

Open your terminal and type:

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

Press Enter and then the following command:

sudo apt-get install -y boot-repair && boot-repair

Most Probably this can solve your issue

No warranty: boot-repair modifies also uefi entries and so on if it works you will be happy, if not, you may be left with bigger problems than before.
