GRUB starts booting Win ME then freezes


In the GRUB boot loader I get Win ME to start then my machine freezes. Windows is on my first partiton hda 1 and is FAT32.

I get the Booting command-list screen:

rootnoverifty (hd0,0)
chainloader +1

Starting Windows Millienniem

The cursor blinks but won't move and I can type anything.

what is your grub.conf looks like?
and, have you tried the instructions in grub manual?:
During grub popping up, press "c" to enter command mode
Then, do the following:
grub> rootnoverity (hd0,0)
grub> makeactive
grub> chainloader +1
grub> boot

If the above does not work, I believe you have problems with your windows boot loader.
