Win7 missing after installing xp

My problem is bit different, I installed XP AFTER windows 7 (rc) to get functionality of the old driver models.
Now after installation my windows 7 is gone.

I got 1 HDD C: was my win 7 partition, D: was my games n stuff partition and then I made new E: partition for XP and installed it on E:
After I got to desktop I noticed C: was now my xp partition and D: Windows 7 and E: was all the games and other stuff and windows 7 wasnt found when I looked from startup and recovery, I know my win 7 is safe but unusable.

Question is how do i get it back to functional, repair maybe?
But does it mess my xp then?

Did you get your Win 7 back OK ?
