Whenever you install Windows or upgrade, such as from Xp to Win7 the
Windows installer kindly 'fixes' the MBR to point at the Windows
boot-loader (NTldr).

Windows backs up the existing boot sector and adds it to the boot menu
via boot.ini or BCD entry.

It was really "nice" of Windows to stop allowing me to boot into Ubuntu
after I upgraded from Vista to Win7.  I had to use a boot "fixer" disc
to give me back my Ubuntu.  At least that laptop is the one I use only
once in a while, since I have a small drive in it, compared to my other one.
