Windows 7: Dual Boot Issue (Lost my Dual Boot Menu)

Dual Boot Issue (Lost my Dual Boot Menu)

Hey Guys,

So I just got my hands on Windows 7 and wanted to play around with it, and everything works but:

Previous Computer Setup:
I had a dual boot with XP and Vista that worked perfectly (both OS's were on separate HD's and worked / booted correctly.)

Drive C: --------> Vista (Now Windows 7)
Drive D: --------> Windows XP

Problem:
After upgrading my Vista to Windows 7 (Via clean install) I lost my boot menu to choose XP. Now everytime I flip the power it boots DIRECTLY into Windows 7.

How do I recover my boot screen option so I can boot back into XP when I need to?

Thanks.
