Default Dual boot failure?

hey guys,

i tried to dual boot my 500gb HDD splitting 1 partition (vista, main) 400 GB and the rest to XP,

i didnt do any research assuming that i will just format both drives with the OSs and it would work. I formatted Vista first, without changing any settings i went to partition 2 and formatted XP now, i cant load boot manager thus trapping me out of vista.

i tried googling for guides, they all suggest that i right click the drive and then it would say something like "shrink drive" or something like that, but when i do that i see this.
