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.
