Windows 7 loves to eat GRUB bootloader

Now I know why Grub is called Grub — Windows loves to eat it up every time it makes an update.  I've had to reinstall Grub about five times this week...

Two notes: my instructions from before works fine for my system.  But remember to unplug external USB drives other than the USB boot-up thumbdrive (or SD card in my case).

umm... and don't delete the Ubuntu linux boot-up drive once you've created it.  You'll need it whenever Windows updates itself and destroys Grub in the process.  Frustrating!
