Windows 7: Dual boot with XP and Windows 7 issue

Dual boot with XP and Windows 7 issue

I've got Windows 7 installed first,and then I installed xp.Since I met some problem I had to go back to 7 without using easybcd.So I had to use the Windows 7 dvd to repair it.And now it boots to 7 directly.Any way to get into xp without reinstallation?
I've installed easybcd on 7 trying to add an entry of xp but it shows can't find ntldr.(I've tried every drive)
Thanks.

use the following guide:

Method Two, steps 8 - 11

Dual Boot Installation with Windows 7 and XP

If you need ntldr, you can copy it along with ntdetect.com from your Windows XP installation disc. I believe they're in the I386 folder.

Also, EasyBCD has some kind of tool in the top menu to "Auto-Configure" the boot.ini

thank you,it works.
Under 7 I copied the ntldr & ntdetcet.com to the partition xp was in,and ran easybcd,then it came the dual-boot.

Can any admin close this topic?
I can't find an option to do that.
thanks.
