I was dual booting XP and 7, and after I reformatted my XP partition I no longer get to choose which os during booting. It automatically boots XP. How do get back the screen that lets me choose between XP and 7?
Thanks

Sounds like you've overwritten the Windows 7 boot loader. Boot from the Windows 7 DVD and choose the "Repair" option.

Here's a link giving more details.

I repaired using the Win 7 DVD but now it only boots into Windows 7. How do I get it to show both?

Progress! The easiest thing to do now is to install EasyBCD which will let you add the XP installation. (I'd have a fortune if I got commission for recommending that program - don't worry, it's free.)
