Hey Guys, I spent quite a bit of time looking for this solution. I recently removed the Ubuntu drive on my dual-boot Windows/Ubuntu machine. As you might have guessed already,the UBUNTU entry in the WIndows Boot Manager was still present after I rebooted the machine. I didn't want to completely reinstall Windows so this is what I found after a lengthy search on the Internet. I hope it helps someone who is/was in the same spot as me-

If you have reformatted the drive containing Ubuntu and you still have Ubuntu entry in your Windows boot manager, you can remove that obsolete entry by following this simple procedure:

Open open cmd as administrator. Type cmd in the start menu of Windows, right click and select Run as administrator.

Then use this command to see the entries in the boot manager

This will give you an output like below. (My output is missing Ubuntu, but you will have one)

Though I'm missing an entry with description ubuntu. Note or copy the value of identifierin that entry. It will be a number like this

After you copied the identifier of Your Ubuntu entry, use this command to clear that

Of course replacing the value of there.

Now reboot to see that your Obsolete Ubuntu entry is deleted. (Actually you won't see this if you do not have more than one Windows, since Windows will be booted automatically without showing the OS choice menu)

If I have posted this in the wrong place,would one of the moderators please move it to the correct forum! I hope this helps someone!
