Default Help please

i have my system duel booted with Xp (system) and Vista (Logic). My Xp side became corrupt and i had to reinstall it. i have done this and i can see the vista partion in my computer but i dont get the option on boot up to choose between the two partions. It defaults to XP and loads up. can anyone tell me how i get the options back?

Use the Vista DVD to get back the Vista boot loader. Vista does not use the XP boot loader. But XP can use VIsta's. So you have to get the Vista boot loader back and add XP to it. EasyBCD will do this for you.
