Grub2 Detecting Non-Bootable Partition


I recently modified the partioning of my computer, and split the one windows NTFS partition that I had into two. I also created another ext4 partition to test Fedora 17 Alpha on. When I ran
grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg
, it worked wonderfully, and detected both F17 as well as my existing Windows install. But it also detected the second NTFS partition as bootable. Strangely, both NTFS partitions are called 'Windows Recovery' something or the other.

Can I remove the entry for the non-bootable partition from grub2? Also, can I rename entries in grub2?
