    How to delete extra empty EFI Partition on Windows 11


    So, I installed Ubuntu alongside my Windows 11 OS on my D drive just for practice. I'm now trying to uninstall it and I'm almost done, but I'm trying to delete this last EFI partition on my D drive which wasn't there prior to the ubuntu install.My windows EFI partition on my C drive is fine. Verified this by assigned a letter to it with diskpart and noting that is has Boot and Windows folders in it. I deleted the ubuntu folder here to remove the entry from the UEFI boot menu.I think ubuntu made this extra partition and I'm not sure how to get rid of it. Checking its contents in powershell yiel

    :)

    Move EFI partition

    its to enable win 10 to update to its anniversary edition.. it cant do this due to lack of C drive space i have had a quick try with the trial version of easus.. it didnt seem to be able to do what i want..

    i am assuming i cant just delete the efi partition but maybe i could.. as yet i havnt even figured out how to get into the bios of the thing.. maybe that should be my next step.. *Smile How to delete extra empty EFI Partition on Windows 11 :)

    diskpart could probably do it but figuring out how (it aint that user friendly) might be difficult without step by step instructions..

    How to delete extra empty EFI Partition on Windows 11

    How to install Win10 when the Recovery & EFI partitions were deleted?

    There are a couple of issues with the above sequence. First, @drpeppercan stated that they already deleted the EFI system and recovery partition. So why is there a select part 1 and delete part override in the command sequence? What is being deleted? The Microsoft System Reserved partition? Hopefully there is an MSR partition there because if partition 1 is the Windows OS partition, then you just deleted Windows. And if there is an MSR partition there, why delete it?

    Second, without a size specified when creating the EFI System Partition, it is just going to fill all available free space at the beginning of the drive. If there was a recovery partition, EFI System Partition and MSR partition, that free space is likely to be 600 MB is size, so you just created a 600 MB EFI System Partition that only needs to be 100 MB in size.

    Without seeing the layout of the disk with: select disk 0, detail disk, list part you can't really suggest an accurate list of commands to rebuild the EFI system partition. It's only guessing.
