    try adding an entry to bottom of menu.lst like the example provided.

    gksudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst

    title Windows Vista
    root (hd0,0)
    makeactive
    chainloader +1
    this is assuming vista is the first partition. If there's a recovery/utility partition instead and vista is second, try 'root (hd0,1)'

    If unsure, post your

    sudo fdisk -l
