Easybcd works perfectly fine. Walk us through what you're doing with some pics so we can figure out.

-> Installed a windows 8 installation partition with easybcd
-> I installed windows 8 in dual boot
-> fancy bootloader
-> removed installation partition entry (it was already empty)
-> the fancy bootloader is gone (wtf?)
-> there is the normal bootloader (ok...)
-> windows 8 entry does not work (whatever I will reinstall it...)
-> windows 7 entry does work (Ok lets recreate a new windows 8 installation partition)
-> removed windows 8 entry
-> tried to add a new installation partition entry thrgouh easy bcd
-> new entries does not show up at boot loading time and neither in msconfig (wtf...)
-> tried fixboot fixmbr, automatic repair through windows 7 recovery disk...I always got the same bootloader with only 1 entry in (Windows 7) .

Adding new entries through BCDEDIT works! but I don't know how to create entries for installation partitions so I need easy bcd. How to fix this?

I'm unable to follow a word of what you posted. Paste your easybcd boot menu entries and the exact contents of your actual boot menu here. A snip of your disk management window showing the different partitions and a description of what you have installed on them right now will help.
