Windows 7: Dual Booting XP Pro SP3 and Win7Pro System Restore.

Dual Booting XP Pro SP3 and Win7Pro System Restore.

I have a dual boot on my PC, original winXP on disk0 (manager and sata cable position), then I have a data drive in position 1, and my Win7 system in drive 2. They both work OK. However, I have the usual problem of when booting out of XP and back into 7 all the 7's system restore points are deleted. I have followed the instructions in Kb926185, regarding HKLM subkey for offline devices, but I still have the problem. The other system drives are called Z, in both systems (used for bcd editor). Have I overlooked something.

system restore followed by slow booting
I had to use a restore point yesterday, it did its job and everything looks recovered as it should be. However since the restore my bootup time when the hdd is loading is way longer than it was, even my laptop boots up a lot faster now. I did do a disk defrag and it had no affect.
