Windows 7: messed up dual boot of XP and Seven - help please

messed up dual boot of XP and Seven - help please

I have messed up my dual boot of XP Pro and Seven
Seven was working well, but XP was playing up.
I did a restore from an earlier acronis image of XP.
XP now works again, but as you have guessed I have lost the dual boot menu to select Windows 7 when I bootup.
I know boot.ini does not apply with Seven.
Please tell me how to get my neatly tweaked Seven back on the boot menu,

You can boot using your Windows 7 Installation DVD , go to Repair Computer and do a startup repair. Will bring back your dual boot menu.

Hope it helps.
