    Hi rd, welcome to NST.
    When you've installed W7, boot it, install EasyBCD 2.0 latest build on W7, add an entry for XP, let Easy2 auto-configure the XP boot for you when it offers.

    Did you use Release 2 as in the link (not 1.7)
    Did you let it auto-configure ?
    If not, get 2.0 latest build, delete the XP entry and add it again.
    Let it auto-configure.
