XP Win 7 Dual Boot after rebuild of XP

Hi All,
I had a perfect working dual boot system XP & Win 7 both on separate HDD's, following a system crash I have had to rebuild the XP HDD.
I now have XP on F: IDE drive and Win 7 on G: sata drive the system boots into XP but does not give the option of boot loader into Win 7.

Is there a solution other than reinstalling Win 7?

help welcome
