Oh, right, I forgot about the hardware requirement.
I don't think you can boot Win7 with the XP bootloader. Boot the Win7 DVD, run a repair, and you'll at least get Win7 to boot. Then download EasyBCD and use it to add XP as a boot choice from the XP partition.

My machine dual boots using nothing....XP Pro is the 1st partition and Win 7 is the 2nd partition...my machine boots right up to a screen which lists Windows 7 and right above that is another option that says earlier version of windows which is Windows XP Pro, I just hightlight the one I want and presto, I am in, and I can even move data back & forth between the two...no extra programs at all....just my 0.02....
