You have a mess there. It would be better to start over with all of your data backed up, then boot the installer to delete all partitions and create new as you wish before Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7
which steps are the same for retail.

XP is expired so I'd leave it behind or virtualize it in Win7. If you must have it then install it first so that Win7 will configure the Dual Boot when installed second. Dual Boot Installation with Windows 7 and XP
