    I'm a sadistic French student, so I'm attempting to dual boot Win7-French with Win7-English. Here are my speedbumps so far:


    1. The default boot menu just lists the operating system name, since both are called Windows 7, it's unclear. How can I rename the menu options to clarify?
    2. I would like to run applications from a single drive, to avoid repeating installation. Is it possible to have installed applications on E: available to both Win7 installs (on C: and D:) [this one, I suspect isn't easy or possible without major registry work, which I don't know I'm up to, but the worst I can do is force a reinstall, and Win7 installs so smoothly]
    I appreciate any help.

    Does the French version allow you to download an English MUI from MS Updates?

    Use EasyBCD 1.72. It allows you to name each accordingly.
