Are you talking about the titles displayed on the Grub menu? It should not be an issue of sort. You could have any titles there and still able to boot Win 7 pretty well.

In your Grub boot screen press "c" to enter grub command prompt. something like this should appear "grub>"
now try these commands:
grub>chainloader +1

and let us know what happened.
