    Easy way of removing entries from Windows Boot at startup solved


    Hi folks
    If you want the easy way to remove any extra entries you have in your windows boot menu at startup the easy way is simply

    from start menu -->run-->msconfig

    then from the popup choose the boot tab

    change default or delete etc.

    Much easier than mucking around with programs like easybcd etc.

    Cheers
    jimbo

    UEFI remove unwanted boot entries from BIOS solved easily


    Hi folks
    with UEFI if you've installed say some Linux versions and you don't want them any more you might still see these at boot if you go into your BIOS boot menu.

    Easy way to fix these i.e remove them

    1) Go into command mode (run as administrator)
    2) type bcdedit /enum firmware (space between enum and firmware

    3)Now you'll see a list

    4) To delete entries you don't want
    type bcdedit delete identifier where the identifier is shown in your list. Include the sigiddly braces { }

    Easy -- job done

    If you are worried about this just simply backup the EFI partition with Macrium - you don't need to back up the rest of the system. If boot fails because you deleted wrong entry simply restore the EFI partition (it's only 100MB or so - takes seconds with macrium and works -- I deliberately hosed up an entry to test this --restored partition and system booted fine).

    Cheers

    Removing EasyBCD?

    Two options:

    1) If you're ever going to dual boot again just delete the entry for the other version of windows. Run the easy BCD program and you can manually choose to delete boot entries (and set timer to 0 seconds do there is no delay).

    2) If you don't want to dual boot restore the boot loader (as newtekie1 suggested) from your windows dvd. To do this remove easy bcd from your system entirely. When rebooting follow these instructions from M$:http://support.microsoft.com/kb/927392.


    Best of luck.
