Best way to edit grub?

I have a netbook that I sold, however, I want to restore Windows to its original. However, it seems that when Linux was installed (Mint-Lisa) GRUB left out the recovery partition, so you can never see it. I need to edit the grub so I can edit and add the recovery portion. My guess the recovery must be on /dev/sda1 (since it's not being shown)..since I been mostly using OSX, I've lost some of my mojo..

Guess I didn't lose all my Linux mojo, a sudo add repository, apt-get update and an apt-get install app did the trick...no web sites visited either on the unit! MAN!

Figured it out.

Edited the chainloader to include sda1...somehow it got deleted with some updates...all is well.
