I recently installed Ubuntu 11.10 on my computer, triple-booting with Linux Mint 12 and Linux Mint 13, this overwrote my boot-loader for my Linux Mint 13 installation. Therefore, after booting into my Linux Mint 13 distribution I re-installed the boot-loader using the command-line.

Using the grub-install command to re-install the proper boot-loader to the boot sector of the hard disk.

C:\HOME\FLYNN> sudo grub-install /dev/sda
[sudo] password for flynn: 
Installation finished. No error reported.

Then updating the grub.cfg to add the other installed distributions to the boot menu.

C:\HOME\FLYNN> sudo update-grub
Generating grub.cfg ...

Then the next time you boot up your machine, you should see the proper boot menu.
