  1. The best way to dual boot, is to set up the older OS first.
  2. Couldn't he just set his boot.ini up to show both operating systems and let him choose which to boot?

    I'm not sure why it didn't do it when you installed xp.
  3. Windows 7 doesn't use the boot.ini, it uses the BCD.

    This guide shows how to set up a dual boot with windows 7 and XP. Follow the 2nd method since you installed windows 7 first.
