To skip one ore more partitions during OS probing, the user has to add
the variable GRUB_SKIP_PARTITIONS to the grub config file
(/etc/default/grub) and provide it with a space delimited list of
partition names (e.g. GRUB_SKIP_PARTITIONS="sda2 sdb3").

Partition numbers tend to get moved around quite frequently, so this would be a fragile configuration, and require manual entry. It would be better to automatically notice that the partition is a Win7 system partition, and ignore it. If you must explicitly exclude manually chosen partitions, they should be specified by UUID.
