GRUB won't load windows partition - root (hd0,0), Filesystem type unknown partition..

Hello. I installed Kubuntu on a computer. Kubuntu loads just fine, but the Microsoft Windows XP partition does not.

There error is as follows:

root (hd0,0)
 Filesystem type unknown partition type 0x7
chainloader +1
The Windows partition still exists to my knowledge. I used to the partitioner on the LiveCD and it seems to have worked.

So, any help is appreciated. Thank you.
