By installing WinXP after Vista, you destroyed Vista's boot mechanism,
which is completely different from that of earlier operation systems,
and which has no use for the old Boot.ini.

Normally, the older OS must be installed first unless you wish to
acquire and use some 3rd-party partition and boot management utility.
(In which case you have to follow the instructions provided by whatever
3rd party solution you select.) However, this KB Article (not for the
faint of heart or technically-challenged) explains how to repair the
Vista boot process after installing WinXP:

Windows Vista no longer starts after you install an earlier version of
the Windows operating system in a dual-boot configuration

MS-MVP John Barnett's Guide is considerably more user-friendly:

Hi aneslin85--

Here are some additional screen shot directions to fix this--and as the
guy's say the rule in Windows is always to install the older OS and older
build first. There are also people who are using the Win 7 upgrade
mechanism to prove they can upgrade to an older build which is interesting
and off this topic.

Good luck,
