W7,XP won't boot

#1
I re-added, after clearing, W7 and XP to BCD which had been operating more or less successfully on the computer. They both were added successfully. Now neither will boot,nor can I reach the BIOS to use a Boot disk for XP.Thanks for any suggestions.

Can you get into any OS at all? Getting into the BIOS is something altogether different, as EasyBCD just affects the BCD of Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8. It doesnt start until after the BIOS and POST have already finished their part.

What problem did you have that prompted you to delete the contents of your BCD and re-add entries ?
Presumably whatever it was is now responsible for the total inability to boot.
W7 controls the dual-boot, not XP, so you need to effect a repair from the W7 DVD, not the XP CD.
