Solved!

How do I remove the first "OS Boot Manager" in the boot list?

HP Recommended
HP ENVY TS 15 Notebook PC
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have an Envy 15 notebook:

Model: HP ENVY TS 15 Notebook PC
System ID: 1963
Product ID: E1P05AV
Memory Size: 16384 MB RAM
BIOS Date: 06/26/2018
BIOS Revision: F.72
Keyboard Controller Revision: KBC Version 93.52
Installed OS version: 2009 (10.0.19042)

 

Several months ago I migrated my internal HDD to an SSD using the free software that came with the SSD carrier manufacturer (SABRENT).  Anyway, the migration worked.  I then removed the internal HDD and installed the SSD.

 

However, when booting, it appears to be booting from the former "OS Boot Manager" which doesn't work.   During power-up, I need to press esc until the menu appears.  I then press F9 to get into the boot menu:

 

Boot Option Menu

 

OS boot Manager

OS boot Manager

Bot from EFI file

 

I have to press the down array and select the 2nd "OS boot Manager" in the list in order to boot properly.

 

How do I remove the first "OS boot Manager" in this list?

 

thanks!

So, I deleted the 😧 partition and about 2 to 3 other partitions that appear to be labeled as recovery partitions that didn't even boot.  So, all is good now.  thanks for the help and the reference to this tool!

Download and install EasyBCD from this link: https://neosmart.net/EasyBCD/

 

When you launch it, click the Edit Boot Menu button.  You should see the list of boot options.  Remove the one you no longer want and click Save Settings.  If you want to retain the graphical boot menu, ensure the Use Metro bootloader box is checked when you save the settings.

Thanks for the reply, but only 1 entry shows up on the boot menu:  Windows 10

 

Here is the output from the "view settings" button:

There is one entry in the Windows bootloader.

 

Default: Not set
Timeout: 30 seconds
EasyBCD Boot Device: D:\

 

Entry #1
Name: Windows 10
BCD ID: {current}
Drive: C:\
Bootloader Path: \WINDOWS\system32\winload.efi

 

The issue appears to be the information before Entry #1.   Specifically, "EasyBCD Boot Device: 😧".  I do not see any way of editing/removing this.  Any thoughts?  thanks!

Then, I don't know how the boot menu is being rendered -- and have only used EasyBCD to make the changes to the BCD.
