This is normal as far as I know. (0x7 means NTFS)

Do you see anything about windoz try to boot?
The "chainloader +1" entry tells Grub to execute the code stored in the
boot record of this partition. Maybe the boot record of your Windoz
partition is damaged?
You can try to boot from the Windoz CD and enter "Recovery Mode" there
should be a command to fix the boot record of the Windoz partition (I
don't remember the command, but _don't_ use "fixmbr". This will
overwright the Master Boot Record, which means that Grub is gone after
Is your Windowz partition the first primary partiton on the first IDE
hd0,0 means 1. primary partition on the 1. IDE drive.
To boot Windoz, it has to be a primary partition (I don't know if it has
to be the 1. primary partition) and the boot flag has to be active. But
the "makeactive" should do the trick on this one.
I don't think I am any help. But if you could post the output of "mount"
and "fdisk -l" while in Ubuntu could may help.
