My laptop is a Toshiba A205-S6812 system, and Toshiba like many others OEMs pre-installed a Windows Vista Home Premium in the second partition that later I change it to Windows XP Professional, as for your question, according to this post the 'First' tiny partition (Hidden) should be a Vista Recovery Environment. I will probably delete it.

I already (in my previous reply) explained this. And for you curiosity I will provide this two screenshots, the first one is the directory listing for the WinXP \Boot directory and the second one is for the Win7 \Boot directory recreated after applying what SIW2 suggest me to do.

-boot.dir-d.partition.jpg

Additionally this is how my BCD store looks now:
