UEFI Settings and removing old entries [SOLVED]
« on: May 28, 2016, 03:47:49 am »
Hi

Distro hopping is fun but it also leaves its mark behind.  When using a Distro that is EUFI compliant it adds an entry into the UEFI settings of the laptop and I now want to remove/edit them.

How do I go about doing that ?

Regards Zeb...

EDIT: All Done - Thank You

I didn't know that.  I'm new to this UEFI lark, so I'll be following this link with interest  ;)!

See:
Code: [Select]
man efibootmgr
and if you can't work it out, post the output from:
Code: [Select]
efibootmgr -v
here.
