I made the mistake of taking my two internal HDs and installing Ubuntu first and Windows second. What this did was when Windows was installed, it took over so I can't boot into my drive with Ubuntu on it. Some people suggested using EasyBCD but I tried many different configs with EasyBCD but could still not boot into my Ubuntu drive. Help!

Load the linux CD or make a bootable flash drive and use the live version or 'try ubuntu option' and follow the following page:
This is the whole guide:
Or if it's on a second drive then you could load the ubuntu drive at statup (y'know, by pressing f8 and selecting the drive) and it might boot into it.
You might want to look into sudo update-grub too
It's been a while since I had to play with grub.

After you installed Windows, the Windows Bootloader replaced the Grub in the MBR (Master Boot Record). What you need to do is to boot the Ubuntu Live CD and once you are into the live CD, re-install GRUB. You can consult this wiki for reinstalling GRUB https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2
The method to reinstall GRUB using Live CD is given in the wiki. You need to scroll down a bit to find it.
