    I have used many times easy bcd to repaire xp and vista dual boot... I have also repaired successfully xp and windows 7 dual boot.
    My xp is sp3 and never face any such error. I dont think their is any compatibility problem in xp with any version of easy bcd.

    Did you installed 'Microsoft dotNet Frame work 2.0' or above in xp?
    It is the minimum requirement for easybcd to work.
    I restored vista bootloader many times after installing xp. Just go to manage bootloader and write mbr. After that if it dosent work, then boot from your vista dvd and repair it. Then vista will be recovered.

    hello guys i am new here but i have a suggestion
    first pop in xp bootable disk after booting goto repair using the command prompt during xp installaion assuming u have already xp installed
    type fixboot
    now u can boot in xp
    now pop in vista bootable disk in
    n select repair, there u will find multiple options use the top most that says repair the problem which prevents vista to boot
    that was what i did when i compressed my c: & couldnt boot in either of the os
    hope that helps

    when u hit fixboot there u will be asked to choose different os installations
    select ur xp installtion precisely
    n u will be asked to enter the administrator password

    Try Vista Boot Pro to repair vista bootloader.
