How to reinstall the bootloader?

Asked by Clifton on 2011-09-29

I restored my computer to factory settings. Naturally it didn't take off Ubuntu because it was on a separate partition but now the boot manager is trying to load a windows installation that has changed. It didn't update itself I guess you could say. Now I am locked outta windows and am struggling to figure out how to configure the boot manager in the appropriate way without having to "go around" it every time I start my computer. I know how to get around a linux command prompt but I am still fairly new. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
