Windows 7: xp & windows 7 dual boot

xp & windows 7 dual boot

A friend of mine made a dual boot system on my laptop. The problem is it loads windows 7 without going to the boot manager screen to allow me to choose which one i want. My laptop came with xp and it shows that the hard drive has been split. And it also doesn't have the recovery in the laptop.
Any ideas? thanks

Please refer to OPTION 1 in this tutorial - pay close attention to step 6:
