Here is what I did using LVM partition. I'm not running "wheezy", but
perhaps some of this information may help you.

I downloaded and installed the debian netinst version of 'squeeze'
about three weeks ago. I am not sure what version of GRUB I am running
but I used whatever version of GRUB was included in the install. I am
running a dual boot system using two hard drives (one for windows and
one for debian squeeze). I have the debian hard drive partitioned
using LVM and utilizing  a separate partition for /boot.  I did not
choose to use encryption for LVM

The only issue I had was that after completing the install and
rebooting, GRUB did not detect my windows OS. It was recommended that
I simply log in as root (in terminal) and type "update-grub". After
the update completed I exited terminal and rebooted. Fixed! GRUB now
offers windows as a boot option as well as debian. All is running OK.
