Dual boot: Win Xp and Win7 Pro

I too was looking for a solution to this problem, and this thread only seemed to extend it, but i managed to find the appropriate solution to the problem:
bcdedit /displayorder {ntldr} /remove      or 
bcdedit /delete {ntldr} /f
I used both and it worked. Holler if this worked for you.

Sorry that was for removing the bootentry for WinXP, from Win7 , when a user is in Winxp, its not possible to edit the bootentry, since it was created from the host Win7 OS, so the trick would be to boot from Win7 Recovery Disc and choose the Command prompt and give this command.
bcdedit /displayorder {bootmgr} /remove
bcdedit /delete {bootmgr} /f
Still this is just a theory, it could work.

Just tried a few minutes back and it worked. Since i am on a dualboot, did like i thought , but here instead of {bootmgr} you need to replace it by {default}, that is how it showed up after booting from Recovery Disc. No need for EasyBCD.
