Mucked up Boot Loader

I installed Windows 7 on my PC and then Windows Server 2008 R2. Of course the second install made itself the default so I used EasyBCD V2 to edit the settings and moved Windows 7 to the top and changed the timeout to 5 seconds.

After a reboot the Server 2008 R2 was no longer there and two entries of Windows 7. I added back the Server 2008 R2 and tried to delete the extra Windows 7 one but it wont let me. Deleting one removes both.
Same in MSConfig. Delete either 1 and both go.

How do I get back to just two entries cause it looks just plain ugly now??

Hi veldthui, Do you have a Windows Installation disk? I'd delete both entries, and then Run Startup Repair from the disk. Startup Repair

You will probably need to run Startup Repair 3 times if it won't boot after the first time

Well I took the plunge and deleted the Windows 7 entry via EasyBCD. Then re-added it and saved it back. This time it looks to have worked and the Boot Menu on bootup looks like it should.
