Google for EasyBCD. From there Add the Vista bootloader. Edit it to include the info from the XP you jsut installed.
Restart and teh Vista bootloader should show both Vista and XP and you should be able to boot into either easily.
Sorry to hijack the thread; I recently had to reinstall XP (and have vista on another partition). I can't access vista now and I have not ran any repair tools. I tried to follow this method but there is not boot.ini tab.
Edit: I found the boot.ini file in XP will try now to follow the steps and will post back with results.
Ok, I ran easybcd, it seems like i'm not doing something right.
Here are the messages I get. At the end when it says to restart easybdc wnen i do I get the exact same thing (first pic, then second, then third)
