Hi,

This problem is due to the fact you install an older version of Windows above a new version. Installing Windows XP crushed the MBR which is indispensable for Windows 7 starting up.

You can use a boot utility like Emergency Boot CD whih allow you to restore the MBR. Here is the link:

Good Luck!
