After the Win XP repair install, Windows 7 will not boot.
That's why I thought it would be easier to dump the image on another HDD (disconnecting the Win7 HDD). Then he can switch via the boot sequence in the BIOS. That would be the most elegant solution and no hassle with the bootmgr.
Will still need to do repair install.
