Cant delete boot entries

I was using EasyBCD 2.0 (beta) to add a few boot entries, which I did successfully. When i tried to delete a few of the old entries, it gave me an error, and wont work.

So is there a way I can delete the boot entries using good old CMD?

Yes, there is.

Open up a command prompt and enter bcdedit.

Then find the GUID of the entry you want to remove.

Then enter bcdedit /delete {GUID}

For example, for me it would be bcdedit /delete {55d98393-12fd-11de-abbf-de276566251b}

There was an issue in Easy build 93.

Got a message from the developer, Mahmoud, that it's fixed in build 94.
