1. First, make sure that your /boot/grub/device.map is correct, e.g.
/boot/grub/device.map might contain:
or possibly by UUID:
2. Then, make sure grub is correctly installed to your MBR, e.g.
assuming /dev/sda is your boot drive, run (as root):
3. Verify you have the package 'os-prober' installed.
4. Make sure your grub.cfg has a valid entry for Windows 7. Run (as root):
The resulting /boot/grub/grub.cfg should now have a valid entry for
Windows 7, and when you reboot, you should be able to boot both into
your Squeeze system and Windows 7.
