Latest Easy BCD major problems

#1
Hi all..
I have last night and this morning been using the latest version of the Easy BCD software (freeware)..And boy what a headache it caused.

I have in the past used the old version..and was it was easy as abc!! but the new vesion IS FULL OF BUGS...

I have 2 SSD drives BOTH with win 7... and due to a upgrade need to shift the drives around in my Corsair case.. But the boot order on motherboard had changed so I needed to re-organise the dual boot...

Usually it take 2 mins but not this time..

Ok so whats happened...The new version is listing ALL MY DRIVES as boot options..including my cd/dvd drives..this is not the case in the old version.
The drive label A B C D etc is out of sync..for example if I rename the ticked boot drive the opposite drive gets relabeled!!!

If I resort to tick the box 'skip the boot menu' it still boots to menu!!

And the most ANNOYING NO WORKING BOOT ON SECOND DRIVE...

So this morning after yet again failing to have a working dual boot I resorted to uninstalling the latest version....AND RE INSTALLING VERSION 2.1.148..

IT WORKED FIRST TIME .....

But in the greater scheme of things... at least I'm up and running again.

If your having similar problems ...re install older version.

EasyBCD 2.2 supports EFI - it is picking up all your EFI boot targets (CD, network, USB, etc) that EasyBCD 2.1 didn't.
