My mistake - although I've never had DVD drive issues. The BIOS could also be checked.

XP, Vista, W7 64bit Home Premium
 
 

IF you made a mistake when installing W7 and selected the old drive to install W7 on in Custom Install it would be installed there but all your XP files still should still be on the other drive I think, so just check whats on it - the MBR would be on the XP disc unless you changed the disk boot order in the bios prior to installing.
