My messed up partition table:

$ sudo fdisk -l /dev/hda
Disk /dev/hda: 36.8 GB, 36825459200 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 4477 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

Partition table entries are not in disk order}}

My /boot/grub/menu.lst

Relevant modifications:

  • set the root for Windoze to (hd0,1), as I have it on /dev/hda2
   # menu.lst - See: grub(8), info grub, update-grub(8)
   #            grub-install(8), grub-floppy(8),
   #            grub-md5-crypt, /usr/share/doc/grub
   #            and /usr/share/doc/grub-doc/.
   
   ## default num
   # Set the default entry to the entry number NUM. Numbering starts from 0, and
   # the entry number 0 is the default if the command is not used.
   #
   # You can specify 'saved' instead of a number. In this case, the default entry
   # is the entry saved with the command 'savedefault'.           
   default		0
   
   ## timeout sec
   # Set a timeout, in SEC seconds, before automatically booting the default entry
   # (normally the first entry defined).
   timeout		10
   
   ## hiddenmenu
   # Hides the menu by default (press ESC to see the menu)
   #hiddenmenu
   
   # Pretty colours
   color cyan/blue white/blue
   
   ## password ['--md5'] passwd
   # If used in the first section of a menu file, disable all interactive editing
   # control (menu entry editor and command-line)  and entries protected by the
   # command 'lock'
   # e.g. password topsecret
   #      password --md5 $1$gLhU0/$aW78kHK1QfV3P2b2znUoe/
   # password topsecret

   ### BEGIN AUTOMAGIC KERNELS LIST
   ## lines between the AUTOMAGIC KERNELS LIST markers will be modified
   ## by the debian update-grub script except for the default options below
   
   ## DO NOT UNCOMMENT THEM, Just edit them to your needs
   
   ## ## Start Default Options ##
   ## default kernel options
   ## default kernel options for automagic boot options
   ## If you want special options for specific kernels use kopt_x_y_z
   ## where x.y.z is kernel version. Minor versions can be omitted.
   ## e.g. kopt=root=/dev/hda1 ro
   ##      kopt_2_6_8=root=/dev/hdc1 ro
   ##      kopt_2_6_8_2_686=root=/dev/hdc2 ro
   # kopt=root=/dev/hda5 ro
   
   ## default grub root device
   ## e.g. groot=(hd0,0)
   # groot=(hd0,0)
   
   ## should update-grub create alternative automagic boot options
   ## e.g. alternative=true
   ##      alternative=false
   # alternative=true
   
   ## should update-grub lock alternative automagic boot options
   ## e.g. lockalternative=true
   ##      lockalternative=false
   # lockalternative=false
   
   ## additional options to use with the default boot option, but not with the
   ## alternatives
   ## e.g. defoptions=vga=791 resume=/dev/hda5
   # defoptions=quiet splash
   
   ## altoption boot targets option
   ## multiple altoptions lines are allowed
   ## e.g. altoptions=(extra menu suffix) extra boot options
   ##      altoptions=(recovery mode) single
   # altoptions=(recovery mode) single
   
   ## controls how many kernels should be put into the menu.lst
   ## only counts the first occurence of a kernel, not the
   ## alternative kernel options
   ## e.g. howmany=all
   ##      howmany=7
   # howmany=all
   
   ## should update-grub create memtest86 boot option
   ## e.g. memtest86=true
   ##      memtest86=false
   # memtest86=true
   
   ## should update-grub adjust the value of the default booted system
   ## can be true or false
   # updatedefaultentry=false
   
   ## ## End Default Options ##
