Grub is looking odd

Asked by Allen

Hi, I have recently installed Ubuntu Karmic on a friends laptop, they liked how well my computer ran and would like to use Ubuntu for themselves. I installed it alongside Windows 7 (which I had never done W7 before) in it's own partition. Everything went smoothly until we restarted the computer. The grub looked something like this

Ubuntu( don't remember exactly, but if need be will get info)
Windows 7loader (on/dev/sda1)
Windows 7loader (on/dev/sda2)
Windows Vista loader (on/dev/sda3)

Now, I booted into both Windows 7's both seemed exactly the same, and Ubuntu, All worked fine. But when I went to the vista loader(which I don't know where it came from as well ??) it seems to be a recovery mode. Is this bad and should be fixed? Also, Where exactly did the Vista Loader come from? Addendum on the side, the laptop has never had Vista. Thanks!!

The recovery partition is identified as Vista, because there is no signature to recognize a recovery partition.
It's not a problem, but it is more sure to update /boot/grub/grub.cfg to replace label (it's simply a print) "Windows Vista loader" with "Recovery".

Can you help with this problem?
