The "EFI" drive is the boot drive you want to use for UEFI. (In keeping things simple).

I think we can safely say there is only one drive.

Maybe it's a partition or bios is seeing it as 2 separate things, boot and data as all the info is the same for both which indicates to me they are the same. especially as you say you only have one disk. What does Disk Management look like?

Ya drive is only one but showing 2 instances

@Suraj007, yes, but again....
The "EFI" drive is the boot drive you want to use for UEFI. (In keeping things simple).
Simply chose the "EFI" as the Windows boot drive since you're in UEFI already and things will be fine. I think you're worry about nothing here.

Yes that could be it. I get it all the time on my machine, sometimes several depending what I have attached and how many efi folders I have put on various partitions.

I still think that HDD1 is showing the NVME drive and HDD2 is showing where Windows boots from.

I can only see one?
You can't see any because there were no folder structures posted. Notice I stated there are two EFI folders on two different partitions, not two EFI System Partitions. Just like I have two different EFI folders. One is in my EFI System Partition and one is in my custom recovery partition. I have only one EFI system partition, with an EFI folder in it, there is also an EFI folder in my Recovery (R: ) partition. I could move the Recovery partition to disk 1 if I wanted to, and I would still have two UEFI boot entries in BIOS because there are two EFI folders containing boot files that the computer can boot from. I can 99% guarantee that is why @Suraj007 has two UEFI boot entries.

You can't see any because there were no folder structures posted. Notice I stated there are two EFI folders on two different partitions, not two EFI System Partitions. Just like I have two different EFI folders. One is in my EFI System Partition and one is in my custom recovery partition. I have only one EFI system partition, with an EFI folder in it, there is also an EFI folder in my Recovery (R: ) partition. I could move the Recovery partition to disk 1 if I wanted to, and I would still have two UEFI boot entries in BIOS because there are two EFI folders containing boot files that the computer can boot from. I can 99% guarantee that is why @Suraj007 has two UEFI boot entries.

what happens when you select each entry. Does windows boot ok?

the bcd output you posted indicates firmware boot device \Device\HarddiskVolume1

If you select the other entry you can check what the firmware boot device is for that.

What is the boot device path for each entry?

The bcd output you already posted shows \Device\HarddiskVolume1

identifier {bootmgr}
device partition=\Device\HarddiskVolume1
path \efi\microsoft\boot\bootmgfw.efi
description Windows EFI Boot Manager
locale en-US
inherit {globalsettings}
default {current}
resumeobject {1a535b8c-4eef-11ec-811b-c1b07d80ae1a}
displayorder {current}


What does it show when you boot using the other entry?
