Grub/Bootloader Not Found After Kernel/Grub Update Dual Booting Windows

http://askubuntu.com – I dual-booted a friend's computer with Win7/Ubuntu 12.04 LTS recently. The machine came with Win7 pre-installed (read: the golden rule of installing Windows first was upheld). Regardless, after installing Ubuntu, the bootloader gave no option to boot into Ubuntu naturally; it abutomatically booted into Win7. From the recovery disc, I re-installed Grub and thereafter we didn't have any problems. I got a call from her tonight that after applying the recent updates, she was unable to boot the machine. I walked her through some information gathering over the phone (as she is three hours away) u (HowTos)
