It may have also never been written to the disk if there is protection enabled in the BIOS settings.

I went back to windows 7 and went to the xp partition and there is only a windows folder

So, it didn't actually finish copying files. Writing the bootloader comes after that.

Did the installer ask you to press a key to reboot (while also counting down for automatic reboot)? I guess it didn't.

 

Since you have another working Windows there, you can just use WinNTSetup to install XP.
