Would it be possible that when you installed the xp that you created a second partition,basically that all the long you had both vista and xp on separate partitions?If you are running a dual-boot setup with more than one Windows operating system, It’s pretty easy to configure the default boot operating system with the GUI interface. Note that if you are using Windows Vista as one of the operating systems, you will need to make this change from Vista, not XP.

First, you’ll need to right click on Computer and select Properties:


Next, click Advanced System Settings









And just select the operating system you want to use:
