Bug#587397: windows detected by installer, but not listed by grub after reboot

Package: installation-reports
Boot method: netinst
Image version: http://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/squeeze_di_alpha1/amd64/iso-cd/debian-testing-amd64-netinst.iso
Date: 27 June
Machine: -
Processor: Inteli5 750
Memory: 4Gb
  sd0 has "system reserved" (NTFS 100Mb), 244Gb NTFS, 220Gb NTFS, 1.7Gb FAT
  sd1 was all "free space" before installation; during install, i made
half of it into unformatted space, located at the end, and i chose
automatic guided partitioning for the first half

During the install, I got a disturbing message about unlabelled
partitions and the possibility of my system becoming unbootable.  I
went forward one step, expecting to get an opportunity to choose
labels to fix the problem.  Instead I got an error message about some
/etc something-or-other being mentioned in some file.  I thought "ok,
i'm outta here" and started using the "back" button.  Strange but
true, the "back" button took me to screens I had never seen before.  A
little voice in my head started repeating "What the?" over and over.
At this point, the room began spinning and I began fading in and out
of consciousness.  When I came to, I was looking at a screen that said
that Vista had been detected, and I would be OK to reboot now if that
was the only other OS that I had on the computer.  I thought "phew,
that was close" and chose to continue with the reboot.  However, after
reboot, there was no windows at all listed by grub.
