you have to highlight each windows partition 1 at a time, each time hitting the mount partition icon.
It may ask for password though.
I have done this before, while no one has suggested, it worked for me.

Then issue comman after all are mounted.

Mount xp partitions it is not going to hurt your xp partition only make it visible to probe.

While you have boot files for windows on sda5, namely:
Quote:
File system: ntfs
Boot sector type: Windows XP
Boot sector info: According to the info in the boot sector, sda5 starts
at sector 63.
Operating System: Windows Vista
Boot files: /Windows/System32/winload.exe
You have none on sda1

Quote:
sda1: __________________________________________________________________________

File system:
Boot sector type: Unknown
Boot sector info:
Mounting failed: mount: unknown filesystem type ''
This is the problem, since windows requires a PRIMARY partition with the boot flag on to boot.

While you do have a primary partition for windows to boot from, you no longer have any boot files in this partition.

This site has some excellent pictures explaining the process windows goes through to boot:

http://www.multibooters.co.uk/multiboot.html

You are going to have to repair your windows boot files in sda1 and then reinstall grub to the MBR and ONLY to the MBR.

Here is a link to restore your windows bootloader:
