Windows 7: System Restore not working @ Dual Boot

System Restore not working @ Dual Boot

I have a Dual-boot configuration with a Windows XP Pro SP3 and a Windows 7 Ultimate. Every time I start the XP, it deletes all system restore points created by Windows 7, and the Win7 does the same with the restore points created by the XP. I've read on the internet that I had to turn on BitLocker, but I'm not able to do that, since my computer doesn't present a TPM device (or whatever). My question is, that is there any way to avoid this, and use System Restore on both systems?
