vista xp ubunto boot

#1
Hello I have a working setup for booting XP and Vista.
Recently i installed Ubuntu but i removed all other drives from my pc when i did this.
So now i kan boot Vista and XP normaly but to boot Ubuntu i have to select manual the ubuntu disk to boot from. I tryed to insert a linux partition in easybcd but it gives this error when i select this entry to boot from:

bootpart 2.60 Bootsector (c) 1993-2005 Gilles vollant http://www.winimag.com/bootpart.html
loading new partition
bootsector from C.H. Hochstatter
cannot load from harddisk
insert system disk and pres any key

I believe this is because the GRUB was installed to the Boot drive which was at that time the Ubuntu Drive. When you added the entry for Ubuntu did you say that the GRUB was installed to the boot drive? If so that would be incorrect since the boot drive with the Vista and XP drives would not be the same.

NeoGrub - NeoSmart Technologies Wiki

That is a explination of NeoGRUB. You will most likely have to add a entry with neoGRUB and say that GRUB was not isntalled to the boot drive.

He might not need to use GRUB if the "GRUB isn't installed to the bootsector" option in the Linux tab works.
