problem in dual booting win xp with win 7 where win 7 already isntalled
  

please consider my scenario:

I have windows 7 loaded on my machine. I created a parttition which was named as F by windows itself then I booted with win xp installation CD and formated F partition, copied xp files after which system reboots itself.

After rebooting I can not enter into win 7 as well as win xp, an error"Error loading operating system" comes. Since I have lost booting into any operating system how do I repair my system.

I tried to use bootrec with rebuild option as well /fixmbr and /fixboot options but then I can boot only in window7 whereas I need xo also.

I have read at many palce to use easybcd /sw but how to use it since I have lost booting into any operating system.

Pls can any one help, it is urgent.

You can try to run a repair option for Windows XP. But one thing you have to ensure that the partition of both operating system must be different. Do this. Insert Windows bootable disc. Then after booting from CD windows will shows the old operating system information. Press ESC. Select the drive where you want windows. Then choose the last option leave current changes.............. and run the setup.
