Default I've got an OS problem...

Hi, I have a computer with two hard disks. On the first hard disk I have Windows Vista and on the second Windows XP Pro. Once I installed Win Vista. I couldn't get the choosing boot screen which allows you to choose between your OS's.

How can I get the screen ?
I need simple solution please (still noob) and I don't want to format

if you loaded the OSs separately, then they have two MBRs.
Use the app Makaveli213 suggested, and simply put both OSs in the MBR with it.
by the way... thanks for the app tip Makaveli213... it truly is a sweet lil proggy

to avoid this in the future, make sure to leave both HDDs in the computer when installing the second OS, then the installation will detect the first OS and just modify the boot record
