Laptop - 1-drive - 3-partitions - DBP doesn't see XP OS

I hop you can see the screen shots I inserted, they explain much more than I can in words. I can't get DBP to see my partition with XP Pro SP3 on it. Any ideas?

Try adding a legacy operating system from the Operating Systems tab. Make sure the XP boot system files (boot.ini, ntldr and NTDETECT.COM) are all on the partition tagged System.
