Which operating system do you want to keep?
Are these two drives separate physical disks or are they separate partitions on the same disk?

You don't merge hard drives to create a multiboot. You are asking the wrong question.

It would appear you have installed each drive as a standalone when you installed the OS on each.

You can not make a multiboot in this situation except by chosing which drive in the bios you want to boot.

To create a multiboot you need to designate one drive as primary and then reinstall the OS or do a repair install of the 2nd OS to correct the registry pointers as well as create the multiboot.

Here is a how to if you set the xp drive as primary

I believe you want to fix grub so that you can return the ability to boot from XP.

Or

I normally change boot order in bios so that I can either select drive one or drive two. Did you do that? If so then return the bios setting to the xp disk.

Why did it take me over a year to phone in a problem to ATT?
