go to the bootloader section i think and click reinstall vista bootloader (same thing as windows 7)

you should also see your old menu entries when you launch the program.

just stick in the win7 DVD, click on repair startup.... If that doesn't work, go into command prompt and type:

bootrec /FixBoot

I don't know if Erocker has ESP or not, but You did not tell us you re-installed it.
I would not get snippy, when these are the people who help you when you ask for help.:shadedshu

repairing the bootloader would remove the windows xp which would have been there. now use the program i told you about and add a windows xp entry to the menu

Uhh yeah, dude, I can read and if you don't know, you can boot to a disk like Ultimate boot CD (http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/)and customize it so you can fix those troubles...without the OS:nutkick:
