Hi neelbha - Welcome to the site :ciao:

There should be a repair option from Windows 7 DVD that simply restores the boot files.

And if you are looking to Dual boot - The older Operating Systems have to be installed first. You see XP doesn't know what to do with Windows 7. But Windows 7 does know what to do with XP. If you install XP even to a different drive you are changing the boot files and will no longer boot windows 7.
