Just because you have still much room for improvement.

You need to delete one of the Win7 options manually. Look for the wrong drive letter - the drive on which you have Win7 installed should stay and the wrong Win7 entry on the other drive should be deleted. Could also be done in msconfig.

P.S. - The correct drive letter for your Win7 installation is the drive letter as seen from the OS that you're running EasyBCD on. So if you're running it on Win8.1, then in all probability, Win 8.1 is on C:\ and Win7 is on one of the other drives. Keep that one and delete the drive letter that doesn't correspond to an actual Win7 installation.

Better still, to avoid confusion, run EasyBCD on Win7 if you can (you need .NET 4.0 framework for EasyBCD to run - so install that first if required) and then delete the supposed Win7 that's not on C:\. That should do it IMO.

Windows allows for dual booting. Install the oldest version first then the next and so on. You do need to make a partition for each OS. Very easy to do 7 and 8.1
