Solved!

Remove "Boot From EFI File" from Boot Option Menue

HP Recommended
HP EliteBook 8470w
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello

 

I would like to remove the entry "Boot From EFI File" in the boot option which can be accessed with the F9 key. Only the "Windows Boot Manager" should be visible.

 

Where does this entry come from and how can I remove it? Preferably without having to install the operating system again. UEFI is set to native.

 

Thanks for any help

That is coded into the firmware of the PC; I know of no way to remove that.  All my UEFI boot PCs show the same option.

Thank you for your reply.

 

That means in Legacy mode you see boot from Notebook Hard Drive" and in UEFI mode you see the "Windows Boot Manager" and the "Boot From EFI File" entry?

 

Does the "Boot From EFI File" entry pose a security risk in any way?
