Windows 7: Remove multiple entries in boot device list on Hp desktop windows 7

Remove multiple entries in boot device list on Hp desktop windows 7

Need assistance with this problem. When booting system sometimes I hit F9 to select boot device, when I want to boot from dvd or usb. Before you say I can list boot devices in bios I know this, the problem Is UEFI and Legacy my UEFI system is not secure boot and for whatever reason I have to F9 and manually select usb or dvd legacy, some versions of linux will not boot otherwise.

Anyway my problem is when booting system I hit F9 and this is what it looks like:

Please select boot device:

UEFI boot sources:

Windows boot manager
Linux Mint
Linux mint
Linux Mint
Linux Mint
Ubuntu
Ubuntu
Ubuntu
Ubuntu

Legacy boot sources:
Hard Drive
SATA0
Network controller
Atapi cd/dvd drive
SATA2

Over the course of the last year I have dual booted several version of linux, but it seems that linux mint and ubuntu add entries to my UEFI boot sources list...how do I remove them, the list is getting to long, and currently only windows 7 is installed.

Hp Pavillion Slimline s5-1114
Bios version 7.16

Ps other than this annoying list the system boots fine right into windows.

I would avoid EFI if it doesn't offer advantages and only trouble: Bypass UEFI to Install WIn7

I guess that is what I am going to do for now. Keep me posted if you see anything otherwise.
