I don't think XP has any BCD commands. You will probably need to boot to the Install DVD or Repair CD and run from there. You can run some commands with the Win 7 Install DVD in the drive, but they are accessible in the boot folder on the DVD.

If you want to share you situation, let us know. A snipping tool picture of your Disk Management window attached will help.

Windows 7 x64 finally!
 
 

maifs, is Windows 7 installed on your D drive or just the files copied to it?

If it is installed I suggest you run a startup repair (up to 3 times). This will repair your boot files and Windows 7 will be in the OSs to chose at boot

If you only have the files, you will need to run setup. You can just start it from within XP
