Windows 7: bcd/bcdedit problems and others after Acronis DD11

Is the # entry the hidden System Reserved partition?

I wanted to clean things up. The F and G partitions were on an old HDD that I wiped, that used to have my old Win 7 installation, but has bad sectors so I removed it.

The D: is my DVD Drive, why are there 5 corressponding volumes??

Delete all keys under mounteddevices.
But don't touch Dosdevices\C:. You see be 38 11 50 after that. Look above, it's listed another time! Delete all except both keys. Post screenshot afterwards

After that reboot, assign drive letters in "disk management". And check system restore settings.

But why not concentrate on the error you have!!!??

Okay I cleaned up old unused mounteddevices, and my system restore points are still working and Not dissappearing, which is great but I dunno what fixed it.
I'll keep monitoring it I guess, correct?

Did you reboot after deleting mounteddevices registry stuff? Used diskmanagement to reassing drive letters?
