Hi bk, welcome to NST.
Are you using EasyBCD 2.0 latest build (not 1.7)
delete the XP entry, add it again, accept the offer to auto-configure the XP boot, don't change the disk letter for XP that it sets up.

Ok i deleted the xp entry and than add the entry, what happens now is when i select the xp to boot instead of my computer just restarting, i just get a blank screen, 1 question i had is when i add the xp entry easy bcd wants to use the C drive when my XP partition is on the i drive. should i change the drive letter to the i and than let the program rebuild the boot files? as of right now vista and W7 still work fine if i change that drive letter will vista and W7 still work?

no, you shouldn't change anything. Just let EasyBCD do it's thing, and that will be all.
