Old Window XP (F:/) not in bootload after new win7

k, so a few months ago i installed Windows 7 RC and windows XP in a dual-boot different partions.

2 days ago i formated my win 7 RC instalation and installed win7 7600, ofcourse after a while i realised win xp is no longer in my boot0-load anymore and i have no ideea how to use EasyBCD in 7 to make xp come back, if there is a way. And i dont want to reinstall XP, that would be to easy same time i would have to reinstall alot of programs again .

So, anyone have any ideea how to repair this mess ?
