Problem with 7 and xp dual boot

Hey guys, I have tried everything I can think of so far with no luck on my new dual boot problem. I already had 7 installed and needed to run some programs that only had xp compatible drivers. I got xp to run fine and I have used easyBSD to create the boot options and replace the bootloader in xp. No matter what I have done before the dots even form the windows logo a(i think 7b)BSOD flashes on for maybe 3/10's of a second and then the computer resets. I tried using the repair disc and the normal bootrec command fixes and still the same error. Any insight would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

So I have tried a few more things and the hdd is clean, no viruses according to eset nod32 and malwarebytes. Also I tried going to 7 in safe mode and no matter what safe mode i went into the startup froze on"loaded:\windows/system32\drivers\CLASSPNP.sys" and then flashed a 7b bsod. Im thinking fresh install at this point, unless there is some way to recover.
