No idea about grub/2, I use lilo - try searching using your favourite search engine. I just did so and found this: http://unix.stackexchange.com/questi...oot-loader#869

(among others)

If running os-prober as root produces no output, then you will have to add it manually. If os-prober does pick it up, then run update-grub and it should work.

You could look at:

Yes I know the Linux mentioned there is Slackware, not Debian but it might still give you ideas.

I would give this a shot.
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Grub2%20Other%20Os

Appears to need a custom menu entry to boot it. Looks pretty straight forward.
