I installed Ubuntu for a Linux joyride. Sadly, it's time to move back to Windows and all was except for the boot menu entry in the UEFI BIOS which was leftover from my UEFI install.

How do I remove it?

In case you're moving to Windows, you may use Yamicsoft Windows Manager to remove it - there are other way, too.

Are you dual booting with Windows? If yes, then just download and install EasyBCD and then do the needful. Or use msconfig or BCDedit (complex) from command prompt as well.

If Ubuntu is your only OS at the moment, just insert your Windows DVD and as you boot from it, you'll get the option to format any drive on your HDD. From the options menu, choose the drive with Ubuntu on it and choose "Format". That should do it IMO :)

If you installed Ubuntu along with Windows, it's easy.
On Windows go to disk management and delete the Ubuntu partitions.

Then do this:
Boot into Windows Install Disc.
Click Repair your computer.
Choose the Windows you installed.

Get to Command Prompt and type this:
bootrec /fixmbr, press enter.
bootrec /fixboot, press enter.

And you're done. ;)

dcs18 is going to assist me regarding a tetra-boot (4 OS) system that will contain 4-way boot between Windows - Linux - Mac - ChromeOS. Anyone interested can put your hands up.

Sounds fun. I have managed two at once... I tried hackintosh but that is a hell of a lot more picky than Linux ever was. Chrome OS was a fun project.

Good luck and if you successfully get it working I want to see video or it never happened ;)

Jokes apart, is your issue now resolved, mate with all the good advice the people proffered you - do provide feedback, if it's not.

Make no mistake, I respect that people can go to such an extreme extent to seek nirvana - hopefully, the take-homes would've over-exceeded the collateral damages and loss in time (which is not really a loss - but, an investment . . . . . . . to my mind.) :)

Oh yeah it got fixed. EasyBCD did the trick. Yamicsoft was weird in 8.1. I guess I just had to treat it like a usual bootloader :lol:

And to my knowledge, no. :mellow: I probably am getting closer and closer as the list of distributions I'd consider using is narrowing down to I'd say 10 or below so I'd say I'm close. :showoff:

Glad you fixed that, my only reason for suggesting Windows Manager was simple - it's an essential accessory to Windows which includes a nice BCD editor.
