I use VirtualBox 'Raw Disk Access' method to install windows xp sp3 to third primary partition on my boot disk.
Windows boot and work fine inside VBox.
`update-grub` menage to find if and create normal grub entry
But when actually trying to boot that windows installation from grub i only got flashing cursor in topleft corner !
Here is boot sector dumped with dd `if=/dev/sdb3 bs=512 count=1|hexdump -C`
My boot disk setup look like this:
  Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/sdb1            2048      206847      102400   83  Linux
