Looking at my backups from the box which ran win7 (the mobo died,
but the config seemed to work until that time), I had

# revised invocation based on gentoo
menuentry 'Windows 7 (loader) (on /dev/sda1)' {
        insmod part_msdos
        insmod ntfs
        insmod chain
        chainloader (hd0,1)+1

Mine used DOS partitions, hence the use of part_msdos : I guess that
part could have been in the general parms.  I suspect that what you
have suggested will do the same thing as what I cribbed from gentoo.
