None is what it says. The only thing that says active is the new partition i just made, as of that is what i was told to do.. i think,,,

I am able to view that because i have the bootable cd in that you told me to download.

Did you do anything to your Win7 partiton?It should say System,Boot under it.

Put the Windows 7 Installation disc in,click Repair under the install button.
Run Start up Repair three times.

Ok i have my own windows 7 cd ill try it that way and no i didnt touch the 7 partition all i did under the xp one was set it to primamry then active.

Alright i just put in MY original windows 7 cd its loading files waiting to get to the screen so i could click repair. It shouldnt matter if they were the cds i have right? its still the same type of windows 7 which is pro.

Alright it found a problem it asked me to restart for the repair and you said do it 3 times right.

If it says the problem is fixed try booting into Windows 7,if not repeat the process.

On a side note,please stop editing,just post a new post.
Otherwise i wont see that you've replied.
Thanks

ok,when you restart your pc,put in your xp disc and boot from it.then click install>advanced.This will allow you to choose where you want to install the XP OS,you pick the XP partition,then install to that.then it should have dual boot

Sometimes you need to run start up repair again to allow the bootloader to show both xp and win7,so just run it 3 times
