Windows 7: Window

Windows 7 64


I had a windows 7 installed in my system in D drive. I created a new partition E and installed Windows xp in that. Now at boot it only gives the option to boot into xp. I installed Easy BCD and wrote the Windows 7 bootloader to the MBR as this link says. Dual Boot Installation with Windows 7 and XP

But its giving an error message while booting as follows. "windows boot configuration data file does not contain OS entry"

What should i do?
