Greetings,

I have two separate Windows Boot Manager instances I can select from in the Boot order list. One of them I use to dual boot two OSs and the other one I want to get rid of. How do I delete the correct one.

Thanks.

The firmware looks for \EFI\MICROSOFT\BOOT\BOOTMGFW.EFI on the root of a partition.

one simple way to locate them is with the free version of diskgenius

Disabling in bios wont stop it appearing in f12 one time boot menu.

You will have to locate the offender on whatever device and delete/rename it.

Seems like the second Boot Manager is gone suddenly, I must have removed it by accident which solves my problem.

Thanks, for looking in to the matter.
