Please Help: Dual Boot XP and Windows 7 issue

I am using dual windows (Windows XP &7). By mistake my younger brother has deleted 1 line from boot.ini and that line must be for windows 7. Right now boot loader show windows xp line and does not show windows 7 line.


[boot loader]
timeout=7
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /NOEXECUTE=OPTIN /FASTDETECT /TUTag=QE29VJ


Please help me, what should i write in boot.ini file to run win 7 & XP both again? because i do not want to install a new win 7 due to my important data and save games files :( :( :(

Note: I have 2 hard disks,
windows xp installed in Hard disk #1 & partition # 1
windows 7 installed in Hard disk #2 & partition # 1
