EFI Boot entries keep coming back after deletion and reboot

Hi there,

on my dual-boot machine there are several entries, which come back after reboot. I’d like to delete them permanently. This is from efibootmgr:

$ efibootmgr

I’d like to remove entries 1,3,4,7 and 8 and used the command efibootmgr -b <entry#> -B on them. What can I do?

Best regards


Remove CD/DVD drive then, and disable ethernet and USB ports. :stuck_out_tongue:

The only thing you can remove is the ubuntu entry. On some machines (i had that with a lenovo) the entries are automatically added if the efi file is still there. So you will have to boot from usb, mount the ESP as root and delete the ubuntu folder.

p.s. although…it seems to be on another esp so you could probably do without booting from usb. Just mount this second currently unused ESP partition (p1 that is, since you are booting from p5).
