I'd run the appropriate hard drive diagnostic on the entire drive...before expending any more time trying to solve the puzzle.

Then...I'd read the following, http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums...de-35065ac38575.

After you run your hard drive diagnostics, and if it turns out ok, try booting into your Ubuntu live CD, if you are able to do that, then you can reinstall Grub from the Live CD.

Which version of Ubuntu are you running? I can probably help you re-install Grub if you get to that point.
If all goes ok, and you are able to reinstall Grub, then you can access all your other OS's from there.

I am unfamiliar with Macs, but if you had Ubuntu on it, you should have a Live CD, which is bootable. Do you still have the CD you used to install Ubuntu? (that is the Live CD)

Ubuntu 10.04 uses Grub2 and I am very familiar with reinstalling that.

From what I can tell, is when you partitioned your hard drive, it moved the boot files. So you will need either an Ubuntu CD or a Windows 7 CD to repair the boot config.

Or... since it is a Mac, check in the Mac forums for ideas.
