This might fix it. Also try rebuilding the mbr, as suggested before.

Will do, hopefully one of these will work.

Scroll to the bottom post, and that should help you out.

Very easy to fix....keep it simple. DO IT THE MS WAY.
at start -> msconfig -> option BOOT -> click XP and set to default.
click save, theN reboot. FAST EASY AND SIMPLE TO DO.

I looked at this last night but from the Boot tab XP is not listed only Win7, yet in BCDEDIT both are listed.

I didn't think it would be.

Oh well, it was good you checked.

Have you tried iReboot?

Not yet. I might reinstall 7 again as I'm having issues with this installation that I was not having before. Programs are crashing more frequently and sometimes it only recognizes my quad core as a single core cpu. I'll go ahead and try iReboot tonight before I do that though.

Set Disk 0 as the first HD in Bios boot order.

That should save a reinstall.

I tried rebuilding the bcd and changing hdd boot order and neither worked. I just got in from playing 2 softball games so I'm beat.. I'll try ireboot tomorrow, I'm not holding my breath though. Thanks for the help so far guys.

I tried ireboot and it did not work either. It tried to boot XP but caused an automatic system reboot just like if I selected XP from the boot screen. I'll probably eventually just reinstall both OS's.. just a huge pain.

Probably be easiest to reinstall 7 on the partition it is on now.

Make sure Disk1 is first HD in Bios boot order before reinstalling 7.

Then add an XP entry to bcd.
