Dual Boot - Existing Windows Vista + Windows XP

I used VistaBootPro 3.3 in my ACER ASPIRE 4720Z Laptop to manage my OS. I successfully backup the BCD. My problem is when I add a new OS (windowsXP Pro SP2) the latter OS would not boot. Please see the VIEW SETTINGS below
There is currently 2 OS(s) installed on your system.
The current boot timeout is: 30

Default OS: WindowsXP Professional SP2

Entry 1 ----------------------------------------------------------------------
Name: Microsoft Windows Vista
BCD ID: {current}
Boot Drive: C:
Windows Drive: C:
System Bootloader: \Windows\system32\winload.exe
Windows Directory: \Windows

Entry 2----------------------------------------------------------------
Name: WindowsXP Professional SP2
BCD ID: {default}
Boot Drive: D:
System Bootloader: \ntldr

I tried to locate this NTLDR file in my HDD but I can't find it.

Please Help me to solve this problem.
