Problem with bootmenu entries.
After installing a third instance of windows I changed in easybcd the default text "Windows 7" in "Windows 7 GAMES." After rebooting I noticed that I had 2 times the entry Windows 7 GAMES in the menu at boottime (instead of WORK, MAINTENANCE, GAMES it showed GAMES, MAINTENANCE, GAMES). I choose the default selected entry that correctly booted the WORK instance)
After booting, only 1 GAMES entry remained in EasyBCD, so I added the (currently booted) entry "Windows 7 WORK" again and set it to default. See screenprints.
Now it shows the settings (With a error in line 3, that shows GAMES but should show WORK)
Hardware: Adaptec 5805z RAID 5, with 4 WDC Black Caviar 1TB disks
1 disk attached to system SATA
Now I will reboot and look what EasyBCD will show. (Be right back ).
The bootmenu now showed 4 entries with the WORK entry 2 times
Below the EasyBCD screenprints that only show 3 entries
I will reboot again and look what the text bootmenu looks like.
It still shows 4 entries, 2 times WORK.
What is wrong here?

Baker of fine scones.
Please keep requests for help in the forums where everyone can see them, not in Private Messages.
Posting a plea for help or information in the forum, will be seen more quickly by a widely experienced audience.
A solution in the forum could also be useful to other future visitors, so PLEASE, no private requests. (they won't be answered !)
It looks that the problems are related by the sequence the menu is ordered in.
If I leave the menuitems ordered in the way they exist on disk (MAINTENANCE, WORK, GAMES) the menu stays fine. When I had problems I had moved WORK to the top off the menu. I use 126.96.36.199 (I just finished a complete reinstall after a crashed RAID 0, and am a bit hesistant to experiment with easybcd after a 4 days restore action)

Please try "BCD Backup/Repair" -> "Reset BCD"
Note that this will delete all entries, you'll have to re-create them from within EasyBCD before rebooting.
