If you want to add the space back to your Windows partition then use Gparted to reformat those patitions and add them to the windows paritions, its all straight forward once you have Gparted infront of you. Though you may need to do it from a liveCD because I dont know if you will wanna wipe the partition that you are using to wipe the partition, if that makes sense. It always handy to have a LiveCD on standby when playing around with your harddrive anyways.

If that doesn't do anything open console.
Then with 'bootsect /nt60 c:' you can write a Vista compatible bootsector, with
'bootsect /nt52 c:' you can write an XP compatible one.
This will allow you to change between Vista's BOOTMGR and XP's NTLDR.
