    Many Confusing Instances of Windows Boot Manager.


    My PC is performing normally, but when I look at the bios boot page, I am very confused.

    Many Confusing Instances of Windows Boot Manager. [​IMG]

    My bios Boot section shows multiple instances of Windows Boot Manager. The actual hardware is two SSD's one older data hard drive, a CD drive and a desktop backup hard drive. The Boot SSD is labeled P3 in the photo. The second SSD (P2) is just showing in the bottom listing and in the third listing up from the bottom. The DVD is P5. The data hard drive is called out by its amount used (476694... )in three locations, and the backup desktop drive (Seagate) in 2 entries. I understand that each of these entries drops down to allow making a different sequence of boot activities, but why so many?

    Why do I have this crazy quilt of "options" in my bios boot section? Why are they in this particular sequence? Why are some repeated? Why does the Seagate have listings with and without "UEFI (NTFS)? Why do some listings show the words "Windows Boot Manager" and others do not? And, to complete my display of ignorance: I figure that the Boot Manager manages the boot*Huh, but do I need these multiple listings? I can see booting from a DVD, but the other drives are not bootable.
    Thanks for trying to set me on the road to understanding.

    :)

    Hello Joe,

    Thank you for keeping us posted.

    We appreciate your patience on this issue. I would like to assist you with further information from here.

    This issue may also happen due to system file corruption. I suggest you to run System file checker. System File checker (SFC) scan is done to check if there are any corrupted system files that could be causing this issue. Kindly
    follow the below given steps:


    • Press Windows key + X, select
      Command prompt (Admin) to bring up elevated Command prompt.

    • In Command prompt type
      sfc/scannow
      and press enter.
    • Restart the computer.
    If no corrupted system files were found in the previous state, then I suggest you to try the following steps to employ the DISM command lines:


    • Open command prompt by pressing Windows key + X and selecting “Command prompt admin”.

    • In command prompt, type the following commands and press Enter after each command:
    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth

    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Cleanupimage

    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth


    • Close the command prompt and restart the PC and check if it works.

    Write to us with the updated information. If you need further information, we would be happy to help you.

    Thank You.
