First thing to do, Assuming an Error 15: file not found, would be to check your grub's menu.lst to make sure that it is referencing the correct partition and vmlinuz26. If you have a separate boot partition it should reference that partition and just use /vmlinuz26 (as explained on the following thread https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=56251). However if everything there seems correct, you will have to post more information for people to help you, such as the contents of /etc/fstab along with your menu.list.
you can check the menu.lst through the ubuntu live cd by mounting the arch root partition (or /boot if you partitioned it that way) and opening /boot/grub/menu.lst.
Also, this might be of help http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1263009.

/boot isn't separated partition, it installed also sda2. Now i installed ubuntu instead of arch linux. I'm planning to install arch again tomorrow, but how can i solve grub section?
Follow the steps on the wiki and you should be fine.
Make sure you don't forget:
# grub_bios-install --boot-directory=/boot --no-floppy --recheck /dev/sda
# grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
to see whether everything is ok.
If you plan to dual boot, you can install os-prober from the AUR: http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=35572 . This will simplify the process a lot - then just run grub-mkconfig again.
