Editing boot records.

Your grub entry for Windows is looking @ /dev/sdd1

menuentry "Windows Vista (loader) (on /dev/sdd1)" {
	insmod part_msdos
	insmod ntfs
	set root='(hd3,msdos1)'
	search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set 2652b0af52b084d9
	chainloader +1}

Which doesn't seem to exist in your drive listing(as if you had 4 drives)
I would highly recommend editing /etc/grub.d/40_custom
and only adding somthing like this:

menuentry "Windows Vista/7" {
	set root='(hd0,1)'
	chainloader +1}

hd is your drive number ( sda =0 , sdb=1, sdc=2, sdd=3, etc..)
the number after the comma is the partition number on that drive:
sda1 = (hd0,1)  sda2=(hd0,2)
sdb1 = (hd1,1)  sdb1=(hd1,2)

after you modify the 40_custom you need to tell grub to regenerate the boot
sudo update-grub
