I have just installed Ubuntu 11.04 along with my existing Vista and I see no boot menu for it on start up.

I Googled for it and got the answer that let me modify the grub file and then execute update-grub to solve it.

But all of this has be to done AFTER you can get into the system right?

My question is how can I even get into the Ubuntu system if there's no boot menu ? I tried pressing SHIFT during boot, but the screen then became still untill I released it and then boot into Vista.

I installed Ubuntu with USB stick, but I see no option of doing this on its menu.

There is an Ubuntu help page about this. You don't have to boot into Ubuntu for this, you can do this from a live CD/live USB. The gist is that you load it up, mount your hard disk, update grub, and that should then present you with the Grub menu the next time you start the machine.
