Ubuntu ships with a recovery kernel.

Just interrupt GRUB while it's booting and pick the second ubuntu kernel.

I didn't buy it, I downloaded the .iso and put it on a CD.

I typically use the livecd/usb as a recovery disk if i need it. but ubuntu does at grub boot up, the second entry typically for ubuntu, is a recovery entry (it boots the system to a console.)

it will be something like this:

Ubuntu, with Linux 3.0.0-12-generic
Ubuntu, with Linux 3.0.0-12-generic (recovery mode)
Memory test (memtest86+)
Memory test (memtest86+, serial console 115200)
Windows 7 (loader)

the one highlighted in red here is the one you want to choose.
