Hi and welcome

Normally xp is installed first and when win 7 is installed it makes a boot menu. You can replicate it by using bcdedit. there is a tutorial for its use here BCDEDIT - How to Use

After you read it let us know if you need help

Have a look here Dual Boot Installation with Windows 7 and XP

You will need to follow Method Two from step 7 onwards.

Boot from your Windows 7 DVD, and on the second screen select "Repair this computer" (in the lower left of the screen as I recall).

Let Windows 7 fix things and hopefully it'll identify everything. If not, post back and we'll walk you through it manually.
