Windows Boot Manager language change in UEFI system

Hi,
I would like to know how to change language in Windows Boot Manager in my dual-boot computer.I used bcdedit and it says that Windows Boot Manager is on Device\HardDiskVolume2.I think this is a partition from Windows 8 when it was installing.When using Disk Management,I see 4 partitions.One is C(Windows 8),D(drivers),H(Windows 7) and an EFI system partition.

Just so we are all on the same page.

You installed a Greek version of Windows 7 but Advance Options are in English. Is that correct?

Advance Option from where?
What are you doing to see Advanced Options?

I know two members that use different languages that might be able to help once we understand exactly what is what.

I have Windows 7 with Greek installed.I press F8 to see Advanced Options.When I use bcdedit,it says Windows 7 locale is el-GR.Windows Boot Manager is installed in the EFI partition and its locale is en-US.

You have tried to edit Windows boot loader I guess (bcedit from admin command prompt, edit boot loader, change the locale)? If that doesnt work then I really don't know what does.

How can I change the Boot Manager language,when I don't know the path?
The only thing it says is Device\HardDiskVolume2.

Try this command (remember, admin command prompt):
Code:
bcdedit /set {current} locale el-GR
