Might be worth trying to use to fix your problem maybe. I don't dual boot with Windows much but when I do. I use grub legacy instead of grub2.

Interesting - says sda2 but points to sda1. Change both the (hd0,1) to (hd0,2). Grub2 counts differently to the old grub.

You may lose your changes anytime an update happens.

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?

Quote:
search --no-floppy --fs-uuid --set 12cc6426cc6405f7
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.
