Windows 7

Hmmm.... how did you create the extra entries using bcdedit? In my case I created a second Win7 partition and mounted it as drive Z: I intended to call it "Windows 7 Fallback" by following these instructions which I adapted from some instructions I found elsewhere on this forum:-

bcdedit /create {bootmgr} /d "Windows 7 Fallback"

bcdedit /set {bootmgr} device partition=Z:

bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \Windows\system32\winload.exe

bcdedit /displayorder {bootmgr} /addlast
However, the very first command failed because there was already an entry with the bootmgr identifier. I also tried using the identifier current but that failed too. How do I create a new identifier for the Fallback partition? I'm guessing I need to create a UID identifier but how do I find the correct UID for my copied partition?
