I am using windows 7 & Ubuntu 12.04 in a 230HDD. Today I installed windows 8 in drive where windows 7 is present by removing it. I don't know exact reason but I am now unable to use Ubuntu.

In disk management of windows 8 it is showing the partition of Ubuntu that I had given for it and all the data is there in it. can anyone tell me how to get back to Ubuntu. I have some important files in it!

the Windows 8 installation will have overwritten the Linux bootloader
You'll have to repair that - however thats something I'm not familiar with: unless anyone else here can help, your best advice is try asking on a dedicated Ubuntu forum
This combination of operating systems is not something I've tried (or very likely to try either....)
