    Fresh rewrite of the W10 bootloader


    What would be the proper way to rewrite the W10 bootloader? Out of the partitions 99MB, 91.90MB is used, leaving only 7.10MB unused. Too many Linux dual-boot sessions have grown the used portion of the boot partition from 34.45MB to the present 91.9MB. The GRUB entries were removed each time, but the partition has continued to grow. Just looking for the proper way to return it to it's original state. I already have a Media Creation, I made ~6mo ago. HP 15-f271wm, 8GBRAM, 512GB ADATA SSD W10 Home Version 10.0.19043 Build 19043

    How To Fix The Windows 10 Bootloader

    THANK YOU. This solved it. I think this was mentioned earlier by you or someone else perhaps but I've messed around with it enough now where I vaguely understood what the commands were doing. I actually had to delete the partition, recreate it, and re write the BCD as you suggested in Step 3.

    Shoutout to @topgundcp I'm sure that last method you suggested would have worked too, but now I understand how to do it manually, so I learned something.

    Also, thank you @NavyLCDR for your help as well.

    I have ONE last question, any SAFE way to remove the old ubuntu EFI entries that are present in my UEFI as boot options?

    edit: Nvm, figured it out. For anyone else wanting to know how to remove old EFI boot entries, use "EasyUEFI" it is super easy. Took like 10 seconds after install. I DID have two identical looking EFI's for my samsung ssd, one of them, in the details, showed that it had no file path. I assumed that was my old broken one and deleted it, must have been correct bc my computer boots up perfect.

    Thanks!!!
