that should not make a difference.

If you add a title tag it should be there no matter what.

Try rebooting and checking again, make sure the file is saved

okay well now the "Windows XP" line works.
however when i choose that option, my screen blacks out for 0.5 seconds and goes back to the GRUB screen.
weeird...

edit:
actually, in that blackscreen, i saw some text:

Booting 'Windows XP'

and that's about it.. and it automatically returns to GRUB screen
