Boot Device is the device that EasyBCD is storing boot files on. With Windows 7, it'll almost never be the same drive Windows is installed to.

It's not a random option.
Your OEM installed W7 with the boot files in their own boot partition, not in the C partition.
EasyBCD is just telling you where they are. Why do you consider that's a problem ?

Also, BCD backups aren't made unless you make them explicitly... and the default to being saved in your My Documents folder. What's more, if you were to select a different folder, the next time you launch EasyBCD that previously used folder will be the new BCD backup save location.
