Re: funnily enough...

And kinda holding my breath what doing so will be doing to my Ubuntu multiboot as well.

I had a couple of cases where a Windows (re-)install disabled Grub, but only that; it didn't actually b0rk it. Booting the install media for any of the Linuxes on the disk, going into Repair mode, pointing it at the boot record and telling it 'go fix' invariably solved it, with maybe a bit of manual prodding here and there. It can even be as simple as noting what the active partition is beforehand, then changing it back after WIndows has claimed it.
