p.s when i boot i the computer shows me 2 options to boot into the old xp installation and the new so it shows:
windows xp professional
windows 7 (i added from easy bcd, but it has no boot information at all, nothing)
so i choose windows xp and then appear other options:
windows xp on D:/
windows xp on E:/
this is pretty annoying... someone help me please? Forgive my english language i tried my best to be clear.

If you boot from a Win7 DVD, you should be able to run Startup Repair without reinstalling the OS. You might need to run it three times to get startup working again.
