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

Go to this link install said software and fiddle about with it. It is easy to get the jist but if you need any more help you know where we are. It is vista boot pro and good software for arranging boot up options etc etc. The link is to a direct download so for those of you who don't want it don't click on the link.

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
