How can i dual boot XP and Windows 7 RTM vhd file in Windows XP without using any Windows 7 DVD?

You cannot do this as Boot from VHD is a feature in the Windows 7 Boot Loader.... Also, there are many restrictions and whilst "it works" it is annoying to use a VHD as a normal OS.

Instead, what I recommend you do is download and install Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 then you can use Windows 7 virtually from within your Windows XP session.
