If you're referring to Win7 backup imaging, you may be able to uncheck the XP drive from being included in the image if it does not hold the System MBR.

If XP containst the System MBR and you don't want it included in the image, you need to use a 3rd party imaging app like Macrium Reflect or Paragon 10 free which will let you choose.

You can also recover the MBR to Win7 and add XP back to Dual Boot using EasyBCD 2.0 if you want to force the choice to not image XP using Windows Backup Imaging. Let us see a screenshot of your Disk Mgmt first.
