Thanks but this did not work:

ls (hd0,3) produced this output:
Partition hd0,3: Filesystem type fat UUID 466d-1902

Are there any more things I can try?

Steve, this is the only other thing I can think of

menuentry "MS-DOS" {
insmod fat
set root=(hd0,3)
search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set 466d-1902
drivemap -s (hd0) ${root}
chainloader +1

If this doesn't work, I am unable to help you further, but please let us
know, maybe there are others here who can.

Good luck - Goh Lip

Just struck me, normally windows, prior to Windows XP, always insist on being set to the first primary partition, but this is of course for normal windows installation and I am not sure how this plays out in your (unusual) case. So you may want to try this

menuentry "MS-DOS" {
insmod fat
set root=(hd0,1)
drivemap -s (hd0) (hd0,1)
chainloader +1

that is, if your are not sure about the contents of (hd0,1)

Note: you can always edit (press 'e') the grub menu to try out without modifying your script.
