Add XP to existing Win7 and Win8 Dual Boot

I am currently dual booting Win8 and Win7 via the Win8 Boot Manager.
I need to install XPPro as a means of running a legacy firewire recording interface.
I understand that if I install XP I will overwrite the current boot partition.
I need to be sure that if I set up EasyBCD within XP that I will be able to regain access to Win8 and Win7.
Any guidance and pre-warning of likely pitfalls would be much appreciated.
