Hermann, I took some time to answer you well, and looking at my message 
where I referred to a web site  which I think explains very well gpt 

Some questions..
o When installing ubuntu, did you set the /boot partition to that sda2, 
not sda1 which is actually "boot-grub" which we are not supposed to touch.

o /boot must be saperate from '/', which I think you have on sda5.

  If you reinstall Ubuntu and set /boot to sda2, you should still have 
your windows intact.
