I am a complete newbie when it comes to Linix and Ubuntu. I have finally figured out how to create a dual boot system that has Windows 7 and Ubuntu 12.04 on it. The Windows is on a completely different SD than the Ubuntu. After running boot-repair so that I can boot into both Windows and Ubuntu correctly, I now have several options in the GRUB2 menu that do not work. How do I delete these options? Also is there a way to change the names of the Menu Options in GRUB2?

The options that I am trying to delete (shown in the attached image) are: 1) efi/EFI/Microsoft/Boot/bkpbootmgfw.efi 2) efi/EFI/Boot/bkpbootx64.efi 3) Windows 7 (loader) (on /dev/sdc1)

All three of these options do not work. The other two Windows options both boot Windows. I had trouble installing Ubuntu alongside Windows 7 where I wanted Ubuntu to be on a separate SD.

The system now works the way I want it too, I am at the stage now of just wanting to clean it up alittle bit.

Any information would be helpful (if the image doesn't work than please let me know, again I am a newbie at this).

Thank you, ~Dan

    We cannot see an image that lies only on your PC, You need to upload it to some place like imagebin and tell us the URL by editing your question. – guntbert Mar 15 '13 at 20:49

Some of an answer regarding GRUB I just posted might help you with GRUB and your boot situation.

Please be certain that you actually want those entries removed prior to deleting them form GRUB.
