How to get the Windows 7 bootloader back after installing XP, as well?

So I installed XP on a partition alongside Windows 7 and I have lost the Windows 7 bootloader. I'd like to have it back, even if it means getting rid of XP, as I no longer need it. How can I accomplish this?

"If you no longer need Windows XP, I would personally just do a fresh install and format as you will get rid of a lot of the ""relics"" that are no longer needed.

Otherwise, the easiest way to simply reinstate the Windows 7 Bootloader is to put in any Windows 7 DVD and on the first screen, choose the Repair option and then it should automatically scan for problems.

If it does not find it automatically, choose Start up repair and it should copy and reinstall the bootloader.
