I'm sorry man i'm not on linux system right now for the exact file names. I 
believe you are using the arch grub yes?  Basically boot into arch,  go to the 
grub/grubd or /etc/grub.d directory.  and in there I think is a custom_40 file? 

In that file you want to paste and append the lines found between the zen 
sections of the grub.cfg file from the boot partition on the hdd for Qubes.   
Just locate that file on the boot partition,  I believe in grub2.   copy 
evertyhing in the zen section and paste it into the 40_custom file on arch.  
Then update grub on arch and reboot.

You will have to do this though everytime Qubes updates the kernel.  which 
isn't often.   

Should be noted though that multibooting defeats the purpose of Qubes.  So this 
would only be for testing purposes.
