There are some things to try, including it seems an automated dual boot repair tool knocking around.

However, there is a very high risk something could go wrong and you'll end up not being able to boot into XP as well.

Back up everything and have XP CD and W7 DVD on hand, perhaps, in case everything has to be setup again (or Repair Install made).

Let someone else do it (preferably the persson who set it up) unless you have no choice.

Can you re-install the windows i.e. (overwrite) at the same partition where you currently have the windows 7 installed?

Alternatively, you can consider click here & click here (as you might found them helpful).
