Try reinstalling GRUB from your rescue disk:

Insure that your motherboard is starting the firmware that corresponds to the boot loader you are trying to run.

Note that most motherboards will not start a UEFI system when started with BIOS firmware, nor will they boot a BIOS system when started with UEFI firmware. If you installed UEFI GRUB, you must run the UEFI firmware, and start XP with the UEFI boot loader. If you installed BIOS GRUB, all must be BIOS.

Furthermore, I have seen that UEFI GRUB2 cannot start an Windows BIOS bootloader. YMMV.
