New Windows 7 Install now I lost my dual boot menu

I just installed Windows 7 on a Brand New WD Blue 1TB drive. Install went great. However in this PC I also have an 80 Gig drive with Windows XP on it that I use for old games. The 1Tb replaced and old 250 Gb. When I had that 250 and 80 in I would get a window that should which OS was on each drive and I could pick one. With this new install I ahve lost that. When I try booting from the 80 gig drive it still boots to win 7. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Are you sure you installed to the correct drive, should`ve unplugged all other drives before reinstalling 7.

Post a shot of disk management.
