Default can't boot into previous OS

My original hard drive contain 3 partitions:
c: is win2000
d: is winXP
e: is winxp

then I deleted e: and installed the win2000 advance server on e:, after that there's no problem to boot into win2000 advance server, but not the winxp (ie. d drive) I got the following error message:

Windows 2000 could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:
\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEMd startup options for windows 2000.

This is a windows XP, I don't understand why it says windows 2000

Can anyone help, thx.

It's because the new windows 2k wrote over some of the boot files you were using with your windows XP setup. As for fixing it... I get that problem sometimes when I try messing around with my OS installs and haven't found a way to fix it other than reinstalling windows XP over its existing install...
