You need to install EasyBCD on Vista as it uses a BCD. Add the XP drive then the boot timeout etc. in settings.

Don't alter what EasyBCD sets up.
Let EasyBCD auto-configure the XP entry.
You seem to have altered it to point to the XP drive - That's wrong.
XP's boot files must be on the boot partition, so XP should also point to C.
EasyBCD makes all the necessary copies and correctly chains back to the "real" XP drive inside a custom built boot.ini
