put win 7 dvd back in dvd rom drive, reboot into it, repair startup, should replace the current boot loader that detects both xp and 7.

Sometimes it will replace the bootloader and not recognize XP, in which case I would recommend EasyBCD 2.0!

unless you formatted the disc it should still be there but that's not to say you'll be able to boot to it. Install the win7 dvd and boot to the repair option.

next time USE PARTITIONS!

Probably just lost bootlog. had same problem download and install easybcd (google it) and follow instructions to install bootlog for win7. It's pretty straightforward.

Hope it helps.
