Add Entry doesn't work...

#1
Hello all, I have installed EasyBCD this morning, i open it, go to "Add New Entry" add a Windows 7 entry, waiting few seconds before to see a confirmation messages in status bar. After i have this confirmation go to "Edit Boot Menu" to see my entry, and i seen "no entries detected!" ? What's wrong ? I try to add again the entry, no better result, try de to my linux in entry, no added too... I using a RAID 1 for my W7 and my linux is in an other HDD. Somebody have an idea for correct it ? Best regards,

Hi,
I've the almost sem problem, just I don't have RAID 0/1 just a sinlge winchester with UEFI.
I've installed EASYBCD 2.1.2, and I'd like to add entries, but it was failed. When I've seen Overview it told to me that:

There are a total of 0 entries listed in the bootloader.

Default: Not set
Timeout: 0 seconds
EasyBCD Boot Device: C:\

After that I saw the
Detailed (Debug Mode), than I've received the next:

How could I remove all of entries except of first without using Win7 install DVD?
How could I able to add entry, when it didn't appear on Overview?

Did you seriously reply without bothering to read my response directly above yours?
My suggestion/advice/answer still stands.

Ok, I've tried, what had you mentioned, but it worked partially.
In fact the "EasyBCD 2.2 Beta - Build 180" showed me the entries of boot menu and I was able to delete the unwanted elements.
But after adding the Ubuntu and setting-up the Winows 7 entry to primary, I've restarted my Lenovo Y580 and I showed just two Ubuntu options.
How do you explain that?
I'd to use my Win7 install DVD to repair boot menu to be able to use my Win7 on my laptop.
After starting normally my win7, I've switched off the boot menu, because, it seems to me, EasyBCD is unable to handle my OS entries.

It sounds like you were booting via the Linux bootloader (you let it take control when you installed it).
Nothing you do with EasyBCD to the MS boot will affect the Linux menu (it's further down the boot chain).
You should first have put the MS bootloader back in charge, then added Linux to its BCD.
You could have done it with EasyBCD
Recovering the Windows Bootloader with EasyBCD - EasyBCD - NeoSmart Technologies Wiki
but you've managed it anyway with the DVD

Now that MS bootmgr is back in charge you can use EasyBCD to add the Linux entry.

Yes it could be happended.
I'm sure that the Linux bootloader is on the /dev/sda5 partition because I didn't allow for the installer to put grub into MBR of the winchester.
Maybe the previous BCD has put it into the Win7 drive.
By the way, my boot menu was so cripply that the Win7 DVD didn't recognize the installed Win7.
So I'd to boot from a pendrive of Ubuntu live CD to rename AutoNeoGrub0.mbr in the /NST folder to be able the Win7 DVD recognize the installed OS.
In this case none of your recommendations was able to repair MBR.

Windows Vista and 7 DVDs are pretty useless at locating the OS to fix. They mostly won't find it if there are any other HDDs present.
I don't know the exact procedure they use to search, but from bitter experience pretty much the only thing to do is disconnect (either physically or by disabling in the BIOS) every other HDD, then it will find the OS and allow access to startup repair or system restore.
