Windows 7: System won't dual boot after a system restore in W7

System won't dual boot after a system restore in W7

Did a system restore in W7 and my dual boot system (W7&XP) won't boot. It's looking for a boot device. When I put in a Hiren boot 10.6 disk, the dual boot option is one of a number of alternatives, and it allows me to get into my pc. How can I get back to having the system work like it did before? So it boots to the dual boot option without Hiren.

My SSD drive is the main drive for W7 &XP. It has two partitions.
