HOw many hard drives are you using? Might want to check boot order in BIOS to ensure you are still booting from correct drive, perhaps you plugged the drives into different SATA ports.

What's your setup? A drive can't "go back" to a different version of Windows...

nope wasnt the the boot order.. this bugs me its like windows 7 was never there, when i boot it creates a new profile for xp and away its goes i presume it makes it cause windows 7 would had removed some of those types of things
