You shouldnt have to touch BIOS unless it wont allow you to boot from disk.

It sounds like your missing your boot manager now,put in your Win7 disc ,repair pc>start up repair ,do start up repair until it boots up or 3times then manually reboot.

hey look at this
Agreed with Chris. Seems like an issue with the MBR being corrupted. One thing with a dual boot scenario is that the older OS is installed first. Try this: Boot to the Recovery Console from the XP CD, type fixmbr, followed by fixboot C: and fixboot D: - this will knock the Vista Bootloader off the system. Next, install XP on D: after reformatting it. Once this is done, your system should be able to boot to XP directly, but Vista will not be bootable (the files will still be there). Next, reboot using the Vista DVD and install it on C:. I recommend you backup your data and then reformat C: using the Vista setup process. When the system reboots, you should have your dual boot setup.

That should work,except you reformat and install on the new drive you made (i think you said you named it F: ,dont format your data/win7 partition

If you use the windows 7 command promt in the repair console of the windows 7 disck and type bootrec.exe/fixmbr or bootrec.exe/fixboot
