Not necessarily.

You just have to tell grub where is windows and how you want it started. When I installed Ubuntu, I did it on a separate hard disk, not a partition. as such, Grub failed to se the Windows installation

Try this:

root (hd0,0)
Filesystem type unknown, partition type 0x7
savedefault
selectactive
chainloader +1

or try this

rootnoverify (hd0,0)
makeactive
chainloader +1

OR this

title Windows XP (C: hda1)
root (hd0,0)
savedefault
makeactive
chainloader +1
