I have read the BCDEDIT article.

I want to install windows7 from selecting the boot menu after creation of boot entries.
->My hard disk have 4 drives (C:,D:,E:,F drives. I have copied all Windows7 required files on the root of F: drive.
->Currently windows7 is installed on my D: drive and windowsxp is installed on C: drive.
->I am using bcdedit commands to creating boot entries. BCDEDIT commands are written below:
-> After the execution of first boot entry, it is generating an ID (I am using this UUID in all other bcdedit commands )
Generated UUID is "0cfde816-5060-11de-9aa1-96570576f263".
1>bcdedit /create /d "Windows 7 Setup" /application osloader
2>bcdedit /set {0cfde816-5060-11de-9aa1-96570576f263} device ramdisk=[d:]\sources\boot.wim,{7619dcc8-fafe-11d9-b411-000476eba25f}
3>bcdedit /set {0cfde816-5060-11de-9aa1-96570576f263} path \windows\system32\boot\winload.exe
4>bcdedit /set {0cfde816-5060-11de-9aa1-96570576f263} inherit {bootloadersettings}
5>bcdedit /set {0cfde816-5060-11de-9aa1-96570576f263} osdevice ramdisk=[d:]\sources\boot.wim,{7619dcc8-fafe-11d9-b411-000476eba25f}
6>bcdedit /set {0cfde816-5060-11de-9aa1-96570576f263} systemroot \windows
7>bcdedit /set {0cfde816-5060-11de-9aa1-96570576f263} detecthal YES
8>bcdedit /set {0cfde816-5060-11de-9aa1-96570576f263} winpe YES
9>bcdedit /set {0cfde816-5060-11de-9aa1-96570576f263} ems YES

After the execution of all commands successfully, a new boot menu "Windows 7 Setup [EMS]" is embbeded in the last of boot menu.
when i try to run it then it start installation process and display a blue screen message and then halt my machine.
