Duplicate entry is added to Windows Boot Manager following a restore using the Symantec Recovery Disk (SRD).

Problem

Following a restore using the Symantec Recovery Disk (SRD), a duplicate entry is added to the Windows Boot Manager.

To date, this issue is only seen when the source server includes a Windows PE partition (i.e. if the LightsOut Restore option is installed).

Figure 1 shows a boot menu on a Windows 2003 server following a restore. Prior to the backup/restore, the boot menu only contained the first two entries.
