Can't Change Fedora Drive Designator On Dual Boot Installation

#1
Hello,

I have a two HD machine with Vista on 0 and Fedora 15 on 1. In spite of changing the drive designator for Fedora from "C:" to "E:" using the Advanced Settings option, the E: never gets written to the BCD. Each time I select View Settings, the C: designator is back on the Fedora Drive. Nothing I've tried over the last four hours successfully writes the E to the BCD. I've tried working with the Power Tools functionality but can't understand the syntax. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

There are a total of 2 entries listed in the bootloader.
Default:
Timeout: 10 seconds
EasyBCD Boot Device: C:\
Entry #1
Name: Microsoft Vista
BCD ID: {22c4262b-8cbf-11e0-a4fd-005022e37dd5}
Drive: C:\
Bootloader Path: \Windows\system32\winload.exe
Entry #2
Name: Fedora 15
BCD ID: {22c4262d-8cbf-11e0-a4fd-005022e37dd5}
Drive: C:\
Bootloader Path: \NST\nst_linux-D0ABDB201A859A6A2843F2B17883B457

Don't change the letter.
The BCD entry is not pointing to the OS.
It points at the NST folder on the "system " partition which has been created by EasyBCD to act as a bridge to the OS.
