Hello! I'm new here. And I need some help...

Well, my HDD had windows xp in c: and vista ultimate in D:
I recently got my hands on windows 7 64bit boot disk and installed it in C: after formating xp [during the installation of seven]. And I don't get the option to choose vista for booting.

I did read up some guides on the net. But each of them ask you to make a new partition and install either xp or vista.

I'm quite confused. Is there any way to get back my vista, wherein I had loads of important data? If not, is there any way I can remove this current Seven so that my original vista boot menu appears?
Please help! Thanks! :huh:

Vista Boot Pro (free) and BCDEdit (free also) have been used by others to fix this sort of problem.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
