How do I fix my XP boot problem created when I created a dual boot by adding Vista.

This is frustrating...I created a dual boot on my hard drive using Acronis's Drive Suite app.  I originally had XP on my machine, partitiioned it, added Vista to the new partition, now use Acronis's OS selector at restart, select XP and now I get this error just before log in...
------------------------------------
Stop: C0000139 {Entry Point Not Found}
The procudure entry point _except_handler4_common could not be located in the dynamic link library msvcrt.dll
------------------------------------
I can boot up and log in to Vista just fine.  The sad part is all my work stuff is on the XP side of the boot.  I tried booting from the XP install disk to do a repair, but when I hit R I get a disk not found error.  That's weird because the disk is obviously installed and works fine otherwise.

I've seen several responses to issues similar to this, but none of have given me a solution to correct the XP boot issue.

I had this same issue and it was resultant of Acronis not from the boot record. I had to remove my Acronis boot sector to get it to boot. I am not saying you should do this but this is how mine got fixed.

Check your boot.ini and make sure it's pointing to the right drive and partition

Vista does not use boot.ini, that's why the other tools are needed.
