How to translate menu.lst entry for grub2?

I have a problem with a manually modified entry in menu.lst for a Windows partition. Windows is booting fine with it, but I am unable to bring windows up with a new entry in grub2. This is how the entry in menu.lst looks like:

title    Windows
rootnoverify    (hd1,0)
map (hd0) (hd1)
map (hd1) (hd0)
chainloader +1

When installing grub2 on this Ubuntu system, I get the following entry for my Windows partition:

menuentry "Windows NT/2000/XP (on /dev/sdb1)" {
    insmod ntfs
    rootnoverify (hd1,0)
    set root=(hd1,1)
    search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set <uuid>
    drivemap -s (hd0) ${root}
    chainloader +1

When booting Windows via chainloading grub2 from menu.lst, it starts off fine, but then somehow hangs with a blank screen.

Where is the error and how can I fix it?

Mit freundlichen Grüßen
