Question Help! No boot loader!

I just got a new PC with XP preinstalled, and went to dual boot vista. My computer has 3 hdds, so I just installed vista onto a secondary hdd. When I went to boot, the bootloader did not ask me what version of Windows to load, and I cant get back into XP. HELP PLEASE

I googled this I found as much as I can about the Vista Boot loader and that is the best info I found.

Also try making a partition on the primary Hard Drive and see if that gets the job done.

Google EasyBCD. Add XP to the BCD and you should be all set.
