I have a machine with 500gb hard disk.

I have created 3 partition on same. 1st one have loaded Win XP Prof SP3, on 2nd there is Win 7 Prof - SP1 & 3rd for Data.

I used to get option for Dual boot , but since last few days option for booting from Window 7 does not appear when system is started. automatically Windows XP gets loaded.

Can some 1 help me restore option for booting from Windows 7 also.
