Your computer still has Vista bootmanager installed. You need a Windows XP CD.
Boot into Recovery Console using your XP CD and give the following commands pressing enter after each line :

fixboot
fixmbr
exit
If you do not have a Windows XP CD, then you can download an ISO image of Recovery Console CD and burn it a CD.
