Bug#990645: Debian's installer's GRUB installer detects Vista instead of my 64-bit W7 installation.

Package: debian-installer
Version: ?

I downloaded, mounted, and booted Debian's net installer ISO (e.g., 
https://gemmei.ftp.acc.umu.se/debian-cd/current/amd64/iso-cd/debian-10.10.0-amd64-netinst.iso and 
in an old 64-bit W7 HPE SP1 VirtualBox v6.1 VM with a brand new virtual SSD (2 virtual drives = 1 old W7 HDD + 1 new blank SSD). I'm trying it before 
doing it virtually instead of my real physical PC to learn and practice (don't want to hose my 12 yrs. old real hardware production PC!). I picked 
most of Debian's defaults (no GUI packages to install for now). I'm currently having problems with its GRUB bootloader part. It detected Vista, but I 
don't have Vista as shown in my https://i.ibb.co/ctfV40c/Grub-Vista.gif screen shot/capture. I have W7!

Thank you for reading and hopefully fixing it soon. :)
