    Sounds like it might be a problem with OSS rather than your XP install as Grub works.
    Try uninstalling OSS using the Acronis DD Boot rescue disk, checking if you can boot to WinXP without it (should be OK- providing its on the 1st partition on your HD) and re-installing OSS again from the Boot rescue disk
