Did you move/change your partitions yet?

The Drive letters will change due to the new Win7 install.

Can you give us a snap from EasyBCD?
From 'View settings', then tick 'Detailed (Debug Mode)' re-size the window and take the snap.

With this and a recent Disk Management snap, as suggested by SIW2, we can help with the Boot Manager.

Looks like you do have your new win 7 up and running(active, system, boot...) What are your wishes and expectations now for your configuration? With new 7 sitting where it is you will be able to extend that partition as far as you want.

Try to remove the second entry in EasyBCD.

Go to 'Add/remove Entries'

Select the second entry, the one you just added, and delete it.

Let me know if this deletes the second entry.

Your Drive (E) and Drive (F) should be 'Primary' but are showing up as 'Logical'

They were Logical Drives in your first snip.

Try to run EasyBCD again, Add the Win7RC to your boot manager.

Be sure to select the WinRC drive.

Let me know if it works this time.

If it won't add to your Boot Manager this time we'll change them over to Primary, and try it again.
