EasyBCD Didn't Work in This Case!!! HELP!!!

#1
Hi all,

This is what I have.....

Disk #1 with WinXP, and after that, installed Win7 (dual boot).
Disk #2 with two empty partitions.

I created an image (using Acronis 2010) of the Win7 install and restored it on the firt partion on disk #2.

Didn't boot. I had to do a repair (two times). After that, disk #2 booted with Win7 without any problems.

Then I created a second (new) image of the working partition of disk #2.

Restored this image to disk #2 second partition, but it is not recognized by Windows 7 (no startup menu).

So I tried to use EasyBCD to create a new BCD entry but IT DIDN'T WORK.

The idea is to have the startup menu to choose between partion #1 (Win7) or partion #2 (Win7).

Any help would be great.

Thanks in advance!!!

EasyBCD 2.0 -> BCD Backup/Repair -> Reset BCD

Then add 2 new entries, one for drive C: and one for drive D:
