Vista Ult 64 bit Seven Ult RTM x64

Hello gee9043,

Welcome to Seven Forums.

The problem is that you detached the XP drive when you installed 7. As a result 7 didn't find a boot loader and created it's own on the 7 drive. You may be able to fix it with 'Easy BCD'. You can find a link here: FREE Great Programs for Windows 7

If you boot into 7 with both drives attached, you should be able to add XP to the boot menu so you get the choices during boot.

Hope this helps.
