Its my personal experience with dual boot.

i have desktop with windows, i free a disk and delete the partition.

then through boot CD i installed Cantos.
there was same issue but i can see the windows in GRUB but system can not be boot through windows, then i reinstall windows then GRUB disappear, then i Google the search to reinstall GRUB, there are so many process to reinstall GRUB, i put the Live CD of Cent-OS and reinstall the GRUB by following the steps. now its fine.

This solution may not be acceptable for enterprise.
