Follow-up Comment #7, bug #29977 (project grub):

Bashing devs won't help you any bit. Reason why bugs are unassigned is
because if someone comes up with a fix he closes the bugs and doesn't assign
it.  Bug assignment is only for bugs needing a lot of changes. In your case I
just have no idea off the top of my head and no time to think of it. Very
similar configs are reported to work. The only thing which is special in your
config is drivemap. Unless, of course, you failed to report that you have
messed up with boot sequence (like installing an "activation crack"). You can
try to remove 'drivemap' and see the difference. Try the following config:
menuentry "Microsoft Windows XP Professional (on /dev/sdb1)" {
set root='(hd1)'
drivemap -s (hd0) ${root}
chainloader +1
Next time bashing the devs can get your bugreport flagged as spam because at
that point it will contain more complaints that useful info.
