Windows 7: Installed WinXP on seperate parition cant get back to 7

Installed WinXP on seperate parition cant get back to 7

Since I was having some problems with a few games in Windows 7, I decided to reinstall Windows XP. I had Windows 7 installed on the first partition on my first hard drive, and then installed Windows XP on the second partition on the same hd. Naturally I can now no longer get back into Windows 7.
I have Ubuntu installed on a second hard drive. When I try to boot into the Windows 7 partition from Grub, it boots into XP. I'm guessing XP changed the boot loader info.
I'm completely stuck and would greatly appreciate any help.
Thanks.

Moving back to WinXP from Win7RC
I am just curious if it is possible to re-install Windows XP Home once I have installed Windows 7 RC? I am pretty sure it is, but the main thing I am concerned with is re-validating the key for XP. Will I run into a problem if I ever wanted to move back down to XP before I upgrade to Win7 for good?
