    A good place to start is...
    Search the Support Knowledge Base (KB)

    for this issue, using "dual boot" and Vista as the 'product',
    I found 12 items, this looks like a best candidate item (ymmv):
    Installing previous versions of Windows on top of Windows Vista
  3. You need to configure the Vista bootloader to see the XP partition.

    http://neosmart.net/dl.php?id=1 is the easiest way in my opinion. You could do it manually but it'd be more of a pain. Good luck.

    Add/Remove Entries
    Tab to Add an Entry
    Tab to Windows
    Set Drop Down to Windows NT/2K/XP/2K3
    Change the drive letter to your XP install partition.
    Change the name to whatever you like, "Windows XP" is a good choice.
    Click Add Entry button in the lower right hand corner.
    Click Save button in the upper left.
    Reboot.

    Good luck.
