    wrong drive letter in msconfig / boot in dual boot system


    Hi guys
    in my desktop I have two hard disks ( disk 0 and disk 1 ) . Disk 1 is a clone of disk 0 created by Macrium Reflect
    Disk 0 : ( C: ) windows 10 pro , upgrade from windows 7 , ( E: ) windows 8.1 pro , ( G: ) Storage partition
    Disk 1 : clone of disk 0
    problem description : I see in msconfig / boot a wrong listing
    windows 10 ( C:\WINDOWS) : Current OS ; Default OS
    windows 8.1 pro ( H:\WINDOWS ) instead of ( E:\WINDOWS )
    nevertheless the dual booting works fine as well as the shift between the disks via BIOS.
    The question is , could I fix the situation using the EasyBCD of Neosmart Technologies to edit the bootloader ?
    I see can change drive letter H: to E: and save the change , am I right or wrong ?
    or any other way
    any help appreciated , thanks .
