You could try installing EasyBCD, as detailed on this web page:

I can't remember where it's stated, but you're never supposed to install 2 OS' (Windows, at least) on the same drive, without the use of something like EasyBCD.
Even if it's the same OS, they mess with eachother and cause problems.
You could potentially end up losing data
