Since you've started Windows 7 now, install EasyBCD 2.1 to add XP OS, accept any offered boot files, it will autocomplete, Save and restart to Dual Boot Menu. EasyBCD 2.1 - NeoSmart Technologies

After this i could not log in into XP again as well because this is no WINDOWS BOOT MANAGER platform to select different OS.
Please what should i do?
And i do not what to do fresh installation of the 2 OS.
Thanks, Please it is Urgent
Put the Windows XP installation CD, look for the NTDETECT and NTLDR files, copy and paste them to the root directory of the XP drive.

Before you do that, is the Windows Boot Manager there? If not, use VistaBootPRO or EasyBCD to activate it.

Didn't see gregrocker's post when writing this. Do what he says, and just go with EasyBCD.

Seas -

As stated EasyBCD 2.1 will offer XP boot files if they are needed so there is no reason to manually copy them. This is what Easy is for.

After installing EasyBCD to Windows 7: If another XP installation shows up in Easy listings, delete it first on Edit OS tab before adding it.
