Are you trying to boot Windows from a second hard drive, but it just hangs and nothing happens?

Windows apparently only really supports booting from the first hard drive, but grub can trick Windows by remapping drives:

title Windows
        rootnoverify (hd1,0)
        map (hd0) (hd1)
        map (hd1) (hd0)
        chainloader +1
