reboot and press Alt+F10, this will allow you to reinstall the original win7 installation. then you can use Easybcd to locate your xp partition and setup a dual boot.
however if you installed xp on a diferent partition or drive, then win 7 will still be on the drive, easybcd http://neosmart.net/dl.php?id=1 is a free tool that you can use to find your boot OS's and set then to boot in any order that you wish.
