How to remove Windows Boot Manager from BIOS Startup options

2020-02-04, 17:21 PM

Hi, 

 

I've just reinstalled my P310 workstation (win10 pro, x64) with MDT+WDS.

The problem is, that when I reboot the machine, it goes straight to blue screen,  complaining about bce.

 

In BIOS I have two entries for windows boot manager under SATA1 drive. How can I remove the one that does not work?

 

When booting and manually selecting the bottom one of the Windows Boot Managers, windows starts normally.

You might be able to delete the unwanted entry using MSConfig.exe, but I have never run into the problem you are seeing with two Windows Boot Managers, so I am not sure you will be able to tell which is which from there, so it would be interesting to see how they are listed using  bcdedit.

 

What is displayed when you open a Command Prompt (Admin) and type:    bcdedit /enum firmware   and press  Enter?     

 

Note:   Typing  bcdedit /enum firmware >C:\bcd.txt  should create a bcd.txt file on the root of your HDD that you can attach to a reply.

 

You can delete the unwanted entry using the command:    bcdedit /delete {identifier}     where the {identifier} value is the value shown by the  bcdedit /enum firmware command including the {  } 

 

Hopefully the unwanted entry will be easily spotted and removed. 

 

See this link for more information https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/delete-boot-menu-options-windows/

 

 

Best of luck,

Do you have a second drive installed? I have the same problem you had, In my Lenovo M920S, the Windows o/s is on an m.2 SSD and I also have an HDD for data.

 

If I disable the HDD in the UEFI, the computer boots Windows normally. But, not a great solution as I need that data HDD.

 

I have not yet tried the workaround of using Bitlocker on the o/s SSD. In the meantime, have found any additional info on how to fix the issue?
