XP = Reboot.

#1
I got vista on C: and XP on D: i made the boot menu with bcd for vista but when i go to chose XP it just reboots the PC and im back to the menu.

Is there a fix for this?

thanks.

Are you sure that the EasyBCD entry leads to the XP drive. Do you have the NTLDR and NTDETECT files on the root of your Vista drive?

There are a total of 2 entries listed in the Vista Bootloader.
Bootloader Timeout: 30 seconds.
Default OS: Microsoft Windows Vista

Entry #1

Name: Microsoft Windows Vista
BCD ID: {current}
Drive: C:\
Bootloader Path: \Windows\system32\winload.exe
Windows Directory: \Windows

Entry #2

Name: Microsoft Windows XP
BCD ID: {2fa11300-bee2-11dc-b28c-0011508edb8b}
Drive: D:\
Bootloader Path: \NTLDR

As for the NTLDR and NTDETECT files i got no clue where do i get them? or should that be just C:\?

They should just be located in the C:\ drive. You should be able to find them in the root of your XP drive.
