Here it is! Partitioning Trouble
Thanks for providing that thread which is in itself a tutorial on moving 7 over onto deleted XP partition.
We have helped a dozen guys do this here since release date and each one is a headache.
Amazing how fast people want to bail out of XP, get it off their machine!
You need to use a free Partition Manager like Partition Wizard bootable.
Delete XP, mark the 7 partition active, copy it over onto the XP unallocated space. (if XP is larger, you need to shrink it before copying), delete original Windows 7 partition
Run startup repair 3 times until it takes.
