As far as I know you have two options.

1.Ubuntu installer tries to take care of booting for itself by unstalling
GRUB. It will erase crrnet boot manager and replace it with GRUB which is
fine, but i you have some reason for which you wou like to use windows bm,
you can always

2. say no to GRUB, start computer in Windows and try using Bootpart. It
basicly adds new entry to windows boot menu. It can be downloaded at
