    Dual Boot Issue (Lost my Dual Boot Menu)


    Hey Guys,

    So I just got my hands on Windows 7 and wanted to play around with it, and everything works but:

    Previous Computer Setup:
    I had a dual boot with XP and Vista that worked perfectly (both OS's were on separate HD's and worked / booted correctly.)

    Drive C: --------> Vista (Now Windows 7)
    Drive D: --------> Windows XP

    Problem:
    After upgrading my Vista to Windows 7 (Via clean install) I lost my boot menu to choose XP. Now everytime I flip the power it boots DIRECTLY into Windows 7.

    How do I recover my boot screen option so I can boot back into XP when I need to?

    Thanks.
