    No you did not mess up your Windows XP or Windows 7 Partitions

    That action only gave Your Account Administrative Permissions to take Ownership of the files if and when needed.
    Ownership of the files on those partitions will now Toggle between System and Your Account, System always having
    the Priority and Final Say if you will.

    If you are concerned simply Edit the NTFS Permissions for those two partitions, find your Account Name in the List
    and Edit Your Account Name and Untic (remove the check mark from the box) 'Take Ownership'

    NTFS = New Technology File System
