Open a terminal in fedora and type this command
Code:
grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
then reboot

Are you really running a Fedora 19 installation?

If you are, run the command osinfo-query os and verify that win7 is in the list. (I haven't tried the rawhide stuff, and the developers may have "simplified" that logic during the initial F-19 development, although that's very improbable.

If you're really using F-18, run this command as root: gawk -F\' '/menuentry/{if($2)print $2}' /etc/grub2.cfg and post the output here between code tags. You should get something like this:
Code:
# gawk -F\' '/menuentry/{if($2)print $2}' /etc/grub2.cfg
