Windows 7: Windows 7 + multiple drives

Windows 7 x64 finally!
 
 

BladeRy, have you tried to repair the Win7 installation with all drives on? I have had that and in the boot options I have "previous versions of windows" and "Windows 7". "Previous versions of windows" will bring you to the XP boot manager. "Windows 7" will load Win7
Running the repair on Win7 with the other drives on (obviously not touching them) should repair your boot options
