Easy BCD 2.0 Beta 76 couldn't delete "Unnamed Entry"

#1
Hello NeoSmart. this is my first post. So first I want to apriciate your very smart software. I love the way EasyBCD is developing with new amaising features. Keep it up. It is really a great software!

My little problem is, I found one entry in boot manager most probably after I tried to "Create Bootable External Media" from "External Devices" button. When I tried to delete it using EasyBCD Add/Remove entries, I get an error dialog box that says
"Unhandled exceptions has occurred in your application. If you click Continue, the application will ignore this error and attempt to continue. If you click Quit, the application will close immediately.
Object reference not set to an instance of an object"
When I click Details, I find this information below.

"See the end of this message for details on invoking
just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.

************** JIT Debugging **************
To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this
application or computer (machine.config) must have the
jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.
The application must also be compiled with debugging
enabled.

For example:

<configuration>
<system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />
</configuration>

When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
rather than be handled by this dialog box."

Here is My boot manager Setting
There are a total of 2 entries listed in the bootloader.

Default: Windows 7
Timeout: 30 seconds.
Boot Drive: C:\

Entry #1
Name: Windows 7
BCD ID: {current}
Drive: C:\
Bootloader Path: \Windows\system32\winload.exe

Entry #2
Name: Unnamed Entry
BCD ID: {3eaebf06-e07e-11de-a9f8-90260d4aaa6b}
Device: unknown
Bootloader Path:

I would be glad if I could be able to delete this Unnamed entry and get an elaboration on how creating a bootable external Media works. Is it possible to make a partition bootable.

Thanks!!

Hi Andex, welcome to NeoSmart Technologies and thanks for trying out EasyBCD 2.0 beta.

Can you please copy & paste the contents of "Detailed Mode" on the EasyBCD main screen here in a reply so that we can get to the bottom of this?

Thanks.

Looks like a corrupt BCD storage...

Reset the BCD with EasyBCD | Diagnostics | Reset BCD then try again.

Solved!

:happy:Awsome!! I did what you said and all entries except Vista entry are removed now. Most importantly, the Unnamed Entry is gone. Thank you!!!!
