Issue: default EFI fat32 partition 100MB ignored and another 100 MB fat32 made with /boot/efi

,

something odd happen when I switched in bios uefi/legacy or secure boot on/off option and it seems this made some odd effect with partitions EFI as it’s now ignored while other is made with Manjaro boot file but without Windows boot file…and I can’t access to default EFI also via removable USBmedia Windows 10, EFI partition is mounted but I can’t access to that partition or it’s maybe empty ? is locked somethow so I don’t know what is inside

the thing is that now each boot ends with boot popup ‘no efi found’ and I need to use live USB I did via ventoy so can in that way by ‘F4’ option to run any boot files found and ventoy menu finds only that other partition made where are two paths /boot/efi and /Manjaro but no any Windows path

how to approach this issue and go back to using that default EFI, dual boot Windows/Linux ?

solved by reattaching /dev/nvme0n1p1 EFI flagged as ESP partition to load content from that partition and additionally unlocking and removing doubled /dev/nvme0n1p5 partition with the same 100MB size mounted as /boot/efi which should be as /dev/nvme0n1p1
