Your OEM splash screen (first thing you see on power up) should contain instructions like
"press 'del' to enter setup" (or some other key(s))
Once in the BIOS, navigate to the "boot" section.
That's normally a tree structure where you can choose the relative priority of device types (floppy/CD/HDD e.g.), and then within device types you choose the HDD section and make sure that your W7 HDD is before XP.
Alternatively, open the case on the left side (power off but plug still connected to keep the chassis earthed) and swap the cable connections between the 2 HDDs.

You have 2 W7 entries, both pointing to D.
Why two ?
and is W7 really on D ?
 
#7
Yes Windows 7 is on drive d I actually added the entried twice by accident. I also tried what you said swaping the cables and pulling the power on the xp drive still no luck with it.
anything else you can suggest does the files look right windows xp is drive c and drive d is windows 7

Thanks

What text do you get with the 428 error ?
 
#9
A recent hardware or software change might have installed a file that is signed incorrectly or damaged, or that might be malicious software from an unknown source. If you have a Windows installation disc insert the disk and restart your computer. Click "repair your computer" and then choose a recovery tool.
