Dual Boot installtion Failed ? :(

Oh boy, i messed up ?! My pc consist of a 200GB drive partition, one side has Windows 7 x86 and the other Windows Xp, Xp recently failed on me so i had to reinstall it, So i figure I'd installed Windows 7 X64 Since i use this Partition to run 3D and design Software, figure i could use the memory upgrade. Setup went fine, But now it boots right into Windows 7 x64. Please tell me i can still boot into my other Windows 7 x86 ? I never backed up some stuff on that side.

Go to start and type in system configuration and open it.

Now click on boot and set it so you get the option of booting into the other too. You can also set the default time out.

Let us know how it goes..

You could also boot to the Install DVD, go to the repair section and command prompt. Type the follwing and hit enter after:

bootrec /rebuildbcd

Wait for a response. It should scan for any Vista or Win 7 install not already in the boot menu. If it offers to add one, allow it and close out of the command window. Then reboot and you should have both options available, assuming everything is OK with the second one.
