In Linux, the system boots YOU!

Learn about boot loaders! In Ubuntu it is GRUB. AFAIR, the version I use stores files in /boot/grub/* directory. And it is NOT necessarily located on the first partition.

He told you where it's located, "/boot/grub/". And it's not just one file, but many. Linux does not work the same way as Windows, configuring the boot loader will be a different process. You could probably get better help at a forum dedicated to Ubuntu or GRUB, I'm sure there are many of both.
