Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Are Easy Peasy (Ubuntu and xp the only operating systems you have?
What is on sda1, the partition marked "Unknown" in your fdisk output?
Your fdisk output shows sda2 marked as the active partition so the suggestion above to change your menuentry to (hd0,2) should have worked if you xp boot files are on that partition?
Run the blkid command to see if you have a partition with the UUID above, the number/letter sequence after set. If so, which partition is it?
Are you running the update-grub command from Easy Peasy? It indicates searching for Grub menu.lst file and at the end it states updating /boot/grub/menu.lst...done. If you're using Grub2, where do you get the menu.lst file. The command should be updating the grub.cfg file. Your output shows there is a core.img file found also which is a Grub2 file.
