Lost xp dual boot

I have lost the dual boot to xp after installing windows 7 on second partition.
I have attempted to use the DB Tool described previously.
Question:
Should the "view settings" show both operating systems set to c:\ ??

The Windows XP keeps showing D:\...

I DO get the dual boot prompt when booting up, and it looks correct, but just keeps looping if i choose the Windows XP OS..

Drive letter help

Hello Brink,

I'm currently running Windows 7 in hard drive 1 with two partitions E & A

I have windows 7 installed in E:
And gonna install xp in A:

I'm clear with all your steps except the 10th step in PART 2..
Just tell me what drive letter i should assign in EASYBCD in order to have a dual-boot of WIN 7 & WIN XP..
At tis time i wanna make clear that DRIVES A & E belong to a same hard disk and rest of the drives belong to another hard disk..

Thank you...
