menuentry "Win"{
  set root=(hd0,5)
  chainloader +1

This is how I edited my grub.cfg:

[rocketmouse at archlinux ~]$ grep -B3 -A2 chainloader /mnt/debi386/boot/grub/grub.cfg 

menuentry "FreeBSD"{
    set root=(hd0,msdos1)
    chainloader +1

menuentry "XP"{
    set root=(hd1,1)
    drivemap -s hd0 hd1
    chainloader +1

[rocketmouse at archlinux ~]$

No EFI involved.

Can't it be done this way?
