Follow-up Comment #5, bug #28284 (project grub):

Was reporting this as a courtesy as I worked-around it and don't care that
much.  Fine with me if no further action is taken.

One thing I remember now is that the partition was created with 'parted' and
Windows 6/7 installed on it in "custom partition" mode with all other
partitions marked hidden.  With this approach no recovery partition is
created, which might be a factor.  The GRUB2 config included a directive to
cause the partition to be marked active whenever booting and all other NTFS
partitions are marked hidden.

When I say that BCDEDIT did not recognize it's repository, that means that no
matter what command is issued it returns an error.  Don't recall the exact
text.ons are marked hidden.
