In this tutorial scroll down to Option 2 and then start with step 7. It will show you how to use a program called EasyBCD to add a boot entry to your XP bootloader so that you can set up a dual boot option screen on startup. Since your XP disk is the boot disk in your system, you will need to install EasyBCD there.
Yes, it is done by installing EasyBCD. However, after booting when the page for choice appeared, now there are three choices, viz. Windows 7 & Windows XP twice, all are opening properly. However, I had installed Windows XP once only. A picture of the page is attached herewith. How to resolve it?
If all the boot entries are working, then simply use EasyBCD to delete one of the XP entries.

Windows 7 32 bit

Use this program to delete the extra entry. It's very easy to use. When I added XP to my Windows Seven machine I used it to fix up the boot menu. It's a no brainer:

Download VistaBootPRO 3.3.0 Free - VistaBootPRO can be used to make changes to the Windows Vista Boot Configuration Data registry quickly and easily - Softpedia

edit: this started out as freeware. Then I thought I saw them charging like $8 for it. If this download turns out to be a paid version you can probably get the last free version on one of those OldVersion web sites.

Dual Booting Windows 7 (32 & 64 bit)
Is it possible to dual boot Windows 7 Pro, one partition being a 32 bit system, and one being a 64 bit? I have a program that just won't run on 64 bit, and my processor doesn't allow for Virtual PC, so can I have a separate partition with 32 bit Windows 7 Pro running?
