Dual Boot Setup for XP & Win7 written to disk via image restore

I've been trying to set up a dual boot from a disk image restore from another computer which was also dual booted and working fine.
Computer Old: has XP and Win 7 loaded on one disk (0) with XP in C: (Partition 1): and Win 7 in G: (Partition 3).
Computer New: was loaded with the image from Computer Old on one disk (0) with Win 7 in C: (Partition 2), and XP in D: (Partition 1).
When Viewing Settings in EasyBCD 2.2 the setup shows:
There are a total of 2 entries listed in the bootloader.​
Default: Microsoft Windows 7​
Timeout: 10 seconds​
EasyBCD Boot Device: C:\​

Entry #1​
Name: Microsoft Windows 7​
BCD ID: {current}​
Drive: C:\​
Bootloader Path: \Windows\system32\winload.exe​

Entry #2​
Name: Microsoft Windows XP​
BCD ID: {bcaa9136-099b-11e2-b871-e02a828e8ba5}​
Drive: C:\​
Bootloader Path: \NST\ntldr

When I added the Win 7 entry (default) it selected the C: Drive
When I added the XP entry, in Automatic-Select Drive or when I Manually Selected the D: Drive, The View Settings showed the same configuration as shown above.

I cannot boot into the XP Partition...If I select 'an earlier version of Windows', it starts and gives me the XP startup screen and then some comment which comes on the screen for a second or two. I can boot into the Win 7 Partition.

Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong?
