Can't boot from second OS?

#1
I have a Dell Win8.1 machines with two SATA drives.
I installed EasyBCD on my main HD.
Later, I had to switch the SATA connectors around, to install Win2k8 Server on the second HD.
For as long as I left the connexions alone, my PC booted in Win2k8, always.
But, one day, I needed to get back into Win8.1?
EasyBCD menu never came up during Win2k8 boots -- how could it?
So, to get back to my Win8.1 environement, I had to switch the SATA connectors around a second time.
This time, when I booted, EasyBCD detected Win2k8 and offered me a choice.
I chose Win8.1. And everything has worked eversince.
But now, I need to get back into Win2k8 : it does not work.
--
I get "Windows Boot Manager" and a menu of both OSs.
If I chose Win2k8 and press Enter, I immediately get a screen that says:

+ Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem :
+ 1. Insert your Windows installation disc and restart your computer.
+ 2. Choose your language settings, and then click "Next.".
+ 3. Click "Repair your computer.".
+
+ If you do not have this disc, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance.
+
+ File: \Windows\system32\winload.exe
+ Status: 0x0000225
+ Info: The applicatino or operating system couldn't be loaded becasue a required file is missing or contains errors.

At that point, I have to choice but to revert to the previous screen and select Win 8.1.

What should I do?

You can try deleting the entry in EasyBCD and adding it again?
