    Hi, EasyBCD as Tito suggested would probably be the easiest way to do it. Another way would be to edit the XP Boot.ini file and remove the Windows 7 entries. More complicated, but clearing the MBR will do the trick as well.

    Thanks to All of you Friends

    also i Found This way.....

    1.Boot up and log on to Windows XP desktop.
    2.Insert the Windows Vista or Windows 7 DVD installation disc into CD-ROM or DVD-ROM optical drive.
    Alternatively, mount the Windows 7 or Windows Vista DVD ISO image on any virtual drive.

    3.Run Command Prompt, or click directly to Start menu -> Run command.
    4.In the command prompt or the Run text box, issue the following command and hit Enter:
    [DVD Drive Letter]:\boot\bootsect.exe /nt52 ALL /force

    For example,

    If the DVD drive path is D:, then enter the following:

    D:\boot\bootsect.exe /nt52 ALL /force

    The step will remove the boot menu to select operating system to start.

    5.Remove the DVD disc and restart the computer.

    6.The computer will boot up with Windows XP installation partition.
