the other entries boot just fine.
what happened was i installed arch on my 6th partition and all was well. in the install i went ahead and overwrote my initial grub to make sure i would have a working boot. i then reinstalled grub and pointed it back to my main stable install, and stage 1, located on /dev/sda1.
