Windows 7: Windows 7 software mirroring (raid 1) and MBR

Windows 7 software mirroring (raid 1) and MBR

Hi, I have been using windows 7 mirroring for quite some time. My main boot drive failed so I removed it and inserted a new drive in its place. Everything works fine except when I try to boot windows.

Normally I see two boot options and the first one is to the (now replaced) boot drive. The second is to the "Secondary plex". I currently cannot boot from the "primary plex" and instead can do so through the secondary plex. How can I fix this?

I tried various tools so far such as EasyBCD 2.0 but fixes made only show when I boot from the secondary plex. Even after renaming the names with BCD I see no change in the boot menu while I do see the change after secondary plex boot (after I boot to windows not during actual boot menu).

I suspect I have two MBRs one visible during boot and one visible after boot.
