  1. I've installed parrot os and it wouldn't boot to windows 10 how do i recover the system and delete parrot os

  2. i deleted it and followed this to the due still had the grub loader somewhat and i cant extend the contents of my secondary drive back to the main parition of the secondary drive any help would be appreciated i still boot windows fine

  3. Heyo, I have multiple EFI partitions on my drive probably because of all the tinkering I've done over the years and I think It's making bcdedit return
    The boot configuration data store could not be opened.

    The requested system device cannot be identified due to multiple indistinguishable devices potentially matching the identification criteria.

    I have one that's 1.22GB and two that are 100MB each, does it matter which ones I get rid of? Thanks in advance

  4. Very useful. No. Unnecessary information.Thank you so much.

  5. The delete command for bcdedit does not work in Powershell. It's ok in elevated cmd.

  6. BROOO thankyou so much, this really helped and the tutorial was really easy to use as well 🙂

  7. So now can i delete UEFI partition that was made with ubuntu ?

  8. All the tutorials I saw were a bit complicated and I felt it couldn't be so. Many thanks, bro. Your method works perfectly. I even had some suspicions, maybe Linux was still there or maybe something was wrong. But no. Linux has just disappeared. Computer works fine and I can go to bed. Eventually…

  9. I'm getting some GRUB editor on startup, something like 'Minimal BASH like editing is supported…', even though Windows Boot Manager has the biggest priority in boot settings. And I can't start Windows. Do you happen to know how I might fix this?

  10. I had deleted the partition before deleting ubuntu boot entry by bcdedit (As you said) but after it im not able to extend my partition with the unallocated space ..but i can shrink the volume and extend it back but i cant use the unallocated space i got from deleting the ubuntu partition

  11. I have a issue grub menu is popping up with nothing I can't do anything

  12. i have two path when bcdedit results showed up.

    grubx64.efi and shimx64.efi.

    should I delete both?

  13. I installed linux like dualbooted and the thing wont show the GRUB MENU AND BOOTED WINDOWS 10 UP! Thanks to this dude i found a solution to my problem! Thanks again

  14. Awesome tutorial, worked perfectly and I could recover 150GB I wasn't using. Thank you

  15. Hey nik this is probably a long shot but is there any reason why it would say that the operation completed successfully despite it still being there every time i check?

  16. Is is possible that my Gigabyte mother board uses a proprietary boot loader? It has a blue UI and says it's a UEFI bootloader but when I select Linux it starts Grub bootloader
