Didn't get any replies from either the help-grub or fedora list on this, but I 
have found something that works, but haven't seen any issues with it, but 
don't know if there might be any issues.

Found that the other boot options that had load_video and the screens were 
being cleared. The windows 7 didn't include this.  So adding it does seem to 
cause the screen to clear correctly, but for some reason, it had to be the 
line, since it wouldn't work if it was after the insmod part_msdos??

These lines were not added by the 30 prober, so I manually did as a test, but 
have now come up with the solution that allows me to update all 20 machines 
using plink.

cmd="grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg ; cd /boot/grub2 ; sed -i 
'/Windows.*/a\\\tload_video' grub.cfg "

Originally, had tried to replace the insmod ntfs line, but that didn't work? 
the above inserting does seem to work.
