Are you using Easy BCD 1.7 or the beta 2.0? The beta is way better for creating dual boots. You don't need a tutorial for the beta.

EasyBCD 2.0 Beta Builds - The NeoSmart Forums

Download it there. You will need to register for an account with Neosmart before you can download. It is free, however.
