I did a clean install of Windows 7 on the same hard drive. I followed the instructions at:
I followed the terminal instructions to restore grub bootloader.
Whenever I reboot. I see two entries of Windows 7 on Grub. I don't recall seeing this the last time. I am aware that Windows creates a 'System Reserved' partition (which is currently on sda1).
When I select either of the two boot options, Windows 7 boots fine (so it seems).
This is what
$ sudo update-grub | tee ~/update-grub.txt [sudo] password for christian: Generating grub.cfg ...

Will booting from the System Reserved cause any issues on Windows?
Why are there two entries of Windows 7 instead of 1? Should I have installed Windows 7 without creating a system reserved partition? Is that even an option?
I am on Ubuntu 13.04. My other Ubuntu machines only list down 1 entry for Windows 7. Ideally, if it had to list down 2 entries. It would be better if it displayed as:
Found Windows 7 (System Reserved) on /dev/sda1 Found Windows 7 on /dev/sda2
Can this changes be made via a Grub configuration file somewhere?
