Can't add third boot entry

#1
I have a working dual boot (window-7 and ubuntu 14.04) system. I just added a third OS, ubuntu 14.10, and went into easyBCD to add the entry. I tried automatic locate and load and As you can see from the listing, it just created a new entry for the old 14.04 system: (this is from the detailed display mode)

displayorder {d8cf0dcb-cce9-11e4-b340-68f72877e1cf}
{23bd78f8-ccc9-11e4-b81d-6057189006e0}
{23bd78fd-ccc9-11e4-b81d-6057189006e0}

The first is windows, the second is ubuntu14.04, as is the third. So, I tried again and manually selected the partition which has /boot for the ubuntu 14.10 install, but even though I manually select the partition I get the same result. If I choose it when I boot, I get back to the 14.04 system.

Any suggestions?

Manual selection for grub2 doesn't always work perfectly, it's something I'm looking into. For now, you'll want to integrate those entries into a single menu file.

Hi Seth,

You'd just have to edit the grub.cfg on Ubuntu to also include the contents of grub.cfg from your new Linux installation.
