As I assigned the letter to my old XP partition I wanted to change it back to C:
And I did - but it cost me faliure in W7 boot and no boot for XP.
So I was a little bit crushed.
I was fighting with it for few hours but it was worth it
Finally I managed to add boot sequence for XP and I have learnt a lot bcdedit commands

But it's working

And my question is - can I somehow clean the bcd?
Because as I understand it it is still in the system, just not visible from XP.
Am I right?

EDIT:

Ok - I managed to clean it with easyBCD.


EDIT II:

I have a little comment to the quote below, according to my recent experience.



You can do this operation also under Windows XP. The only difference will be tah You will not do whole operation in CMD.

When You will get to this point:


You will not be able to do this step:



So what You have to do is to use EasyBCD to make Your new Windows 7 installation bootable.
Very helpful here is this thread:
How to Do a Dual Boot Installation with Windows 7 and XP
Start from point 7. of Method II and just adjust it to Windows 7 instead of XP.

Hope it will help someone to avoid the problems I had
And once again thanks for support.

Something caused the computer to reboot unexpectedly while setup was running. Try deleting the install partition with diskpart and re-applying the image with imagex. If the same thing happens again, you can check the setup logs using Windows 7 boot media.

I have xp installed
I created a new partition
then followed ya instructions for everything else
Then I followed Luciak's advice on Easy BCD
rebooted selected win7 and for the first time booted into win7
On the very very first time booting into win 7 it was doing its first time startup
it errored on something about not bieng able to change the boot manager or boot record
Then it rebooted
and when i went back in i get this same error from my screenshot no matter how many reboots .

Im starting from scratch but will be getting your reply on my Blackberry
Thanks again for your help

Sounds like the installation didn't complete, you shouldn't need to select anything from the boot screen, it should just carry on with the install on it own until you get asked to enter your user name.
