This is confusing. If you deleted XP and installed Windows 7, then went back to XP, why would it boot to Windows 7?
I guess you meant to say you have still have XP and Windows 7 on separate partitions, but changes you made have cut XP out of the Boot Menu?
The solution to this is to download and install EasyBCD 2.0 beta to Windows 7 (after doing the quick forum registration to use beta) and Add XP back to Dual boot menu. It will offer boot fiiles which should be accepted and then autocomplete the Add. Restart to Dual Boot menu.
If this fails, then we need to see a screenshot of your full Disk Management drive map, using Snipping Tool in Start Menu - attach file using Paper Clip in Reply Box.
Sorry, i tried to make it as short as possible.
1. I have 2 partition. XP and Windows 7 (ultimate).
2. Decided to remove XP and replace that with another Windows 7 (professional).
3. When i did that, my PC automatically boot to Windows 7 Pro instead of giving me the option.
4. Because of that, i remove Windows 7 Pro and went back to XP.
5. After which, my PC boots to XP without giving me an option to load Windows 7 Ultimate as well.
6. Got my Windows 7 DVD and did the "bootrec /fixmbr - bootrec /Fixboot".
7. Now, my PC load straight to Windows 7 Ultimate and doesn't show XP.
I have EasyBCD but don't really know how to actually get it back.
