However, if you cannot mount that partition with X11 or your Ubuntu Live Boot Disc does not have X11, you need mount that partition manually.
Open the terminal and type

sudo fdisk -l

to view all partitions in your harddisk(s).
You should know where does Ubuntu partition installed. For example /dev/sda5
Then type

sudo mkdir /mnt/sda5

to create a directory for mounting the partition
Next type

sudo mount /dev/sda5 /mnt/sda5

After mounting the partition, type

sudo grub-install --root-directory=/mnt/sda5 /dev/sda

You should know where does your GRUB install to.
If Master Boot Record is in first harddisk, you should type /dev/sda
If Master Boot Record is in second harddisk, you should type /dev/sdb
If Master Boot Record is in third harddisk, you should type /dev/sdc
