    You don't say whether your Win 7 is on the same drive as XP, in a different partition. From experieince, I NEVER put 2 operating systems on the same drive....some people will argue it is perfectly safe, but as a Software Diagnostics Engineer, I would never advise that.

    I also don't use Bootmangers (software type). I have XP on one drive, and Win 7 on the other. I then choose which to boot in the BIOS. This has NEVER given any problems.
