Hi imalone, welcome to NeoSmart Technologies!

Look for a folder called "BOOT," is it on C:\ or D:\ ?

Hi Computer Guru, my best regards and thank you very much for your answer.
The BOOT folder is C:\Windows\system32\boot

No - not Windows\System32\Boot but \Boot

You will need to enable the viewing of hidden and system files first (My Computer | Tools | Options | View)

Probably easier to just type:
Start | Run | C:\Boot
Start | Run | D:\Boot

and see which of them works.

OK, you're going to have to do it the hard way.

Format the XP drive.
Boot from the Vista DVD. Select Advanced/Startup Repair. Let it recreate the files and folders it needs and reboot.

Good luck.
