What you have done is wiped the MBR (Master Boot Record) off your computer as Windows XP writes over the one for any other os what you need to do is;-

1. Insert your vista disc and tell it to boot from disk.
2. When asked it will ask you what you want to do and you tell it to repair your pc.

Thish should hopefully reset you MBR back to Vista and when you boot up the next time you should see both options for Vista and XP

it is somthing microsoft didn't think about when creating xp..


Hope it all goes well
