Windows 7: MSCONFIG Blank Boot Tab

Windows 7 64-bit

Problem is, now, after a reboot, everything's back to before. MSCONFIG boot tab's still blank. :P

Ok, so I messed around with the Startup Repair, manually moved the BCD around, and essentially wrecked everything. However, I somehow got everything to go back to normal But one more question: How do you change the boot entry name in MSCONFIG? Because at the end, it says "(recovered)".

I really don't know, never ran into that before. If it was my computer and everything worked as it should I would leave it alone. It says (recovered) and that is exactly what happened. It was recovered.
