Thanks for your response!

Sadly, right clicking on these entries does nothing. Left clicking on them merely provides an opportunity to specify a different boot source, it does not offer the opportunity to delete, nor to rename.

As stated in my OP, the NVMe drive contains Linux, the first SSD contains W10 and the second SSD is for data storage.

When I press F11 at boot to select Linux, or W10, I have options for 1) Linux, 2) Windows, 3 through 27) the NVMe drive, 28) drive B, 29) Drive B, 30) DVD, 31) USB

Question: I see no obvious way to edit/delete some of the redundant entries for the NVMe drive. How can I safely remove some of these entries without damaging my install, which otherwise works correctly?




If you click on any existing Boot Manager entry, besides Empty, you should see this:




You have a Delete option for those entries.

My question is, why do all those entries appear. You said the NVMe drive has multiple entries in the Boot Manager tool? What is on that drive?

You can barely see it in the screenshot above, but my Windows 10 drive is a 960 EVO. I only get one entry for it in Boot Manager, I have not removed any entries, no need to do that. I'm very curious what is on your 960 EVO.

I was afraid that I would be stuck with this mess. I'm trying to get a grip on my OCD!

I put a couple of pics on Imgur: http://imgur.com/a/fVpVD

I'm not aware of anything that will. There might be but I imagine it would be risky to do.

That is generated at the BIOS level.



I guess, and with a bit of humor, be thankful your choices are at the top?




Out of curiosity care to snap a pic of the list and post it here. I'll investigate some as I used to be rather good at BIOS editing. No promise though, ok?







X370 SLI/ac(r1.03, BIOS 5.10), 1500X, H115i, F4-4133C19D-16GTZA, 970 EVO M.2 250GB + 500GB, Tt Core X9 Black
