Windows dissapeared from Grub boot menu with debian

There seems to be a certain bug with Debian, when installing it on the same hard drive with Windows, on the next boot, windows is not one of the options, so what you can do is this

update-grub

You will see results such as

update-grub
Generating grub.cfg ...
Found background image: /usr/share/images/desktop-base/desktop-grub.png
Found linux image: /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.32-5-686
Found initrd image: /boot/initrd.img-2.6.32-5-686
Found Windows 7 (loader) on /dev/sda1
done

Grub should now find you missing windows and add it to the boot menu !

I wrote this for my own reference, because every time i install i spend so much time trying to find the magic words online again
