Yup, go into start with XP, then right click on My Computer, hit the properties button. From there, go to the "Advanced" tab. Under the Startup and Recovery section, hit the "Settings" button.

At the top of this box you will see a drop-down bar, and two places to check a box. Where it says "Time to display list of operating systems" Make sure it's checked and put it to 30 seconds.

If you want to change the order of which OS it auto-boots to, let me know.

Did you create the XP OS in the same partition as the W7 OS? or did you shrink the W7 partition and make a new partition then format it?
