Follow-up Comment #5, bug #29977 (project grub):

I pride myself with not asking simple questions.
If it was simple, I would not be wasting time here, and would have just used
one of the thousands solutions offered by google for a query 'grub cannot boot
windows' (that's for your stab at me regarding 'my system only' affected).

The problem is not that os-probe can't detect Windows - it can and always

The problem is that grub still refuses to boot Windows after that. Here at

### BEGIN /etc/grub.d/30_os-prober ###
menuentry "Microsoft Windows XP Professional (on /dev/sdb1)" {
        insmod ntfs
        set root='(hd1,1)'
        search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set 5a9c03999c036eb7
        drivemap -s (hd0) ${root}
        chainloader +1
### END /etc/grub.d/30_os-prober ###
