I added Zorin 8.1 and now am unable to access my windows XP.

I installed Zorin 8.1 on my laptop. I installed it as a dual boot setup.
I now am unable to access the windows XP.

When loading the Zorin 8.1 I caused a problem at first when attempting to give it 20 gig of harddrive when only 18 gig was available. I had to reinstall the Zorin then the Zorin installation went smoothly.

When I boot the computer up, I have the option of Zorin or Windows. Only the Zorin option works but not the Windows.

The Zorin runs fine now. Just no XP

Thank You for any ideas.
