Reinstalling Vista over the top of itself should also reinstall the boot manager files in the XP partition, which were lost when you had to reinstall XP.

It can also be done using your Vista DVD and selecting repair options. I've done it this way after a XP reinstall. Also Vista Boot Pro will work with RC2, I've tried it.
