Accessing the EFI partition in windows

by ndg2000 » March 31st, 2017, 6:20 am

hi i saw this on line somewhere it may have been on this site i cant remember but i thought i would share it here as i have found it useful when the UEFI partition had a few different UBUNTU boot options that didn't go anywhere


1- Mount the EFI partition to a free mount point:
-- Run command prompt as administrator
-- Type "mountvol X: /s" (without the quotes, X being an unused mount point)

2- If you just want to get rid of additional boot options you can use task manager (right click windows icon bottom left)
-run task manager
-then click file ---- run new task-----Browse..-- then in the file manager you will see the UEFI partition mounted as X: and you will have simple file access to the drive then be able to delete the folders that you need to.

3- If you need more extensive file access use Explorer++ (Free, Open Source app) to manipulate the files on the partition:
-- You need to be registered to view this link, please log-in or register
-- Run Explorer++ with administrative privileges

Hope you find this useful


PS DON'T EVER CHANGE ANYTHING IN THE FOLDER FOR WINDOWS UNLESS YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING AS THS WILL MESS UP YOUR WINDOWS BOOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
