    Ubuntu is no longer on my system, this is an issue with my Windows booting configuration still detecting an entry from Ubuntu. My question is related to making a change in the Windows operating system to remove all instances of the old Ubuntu system; I just need to know where to go or what could be causing it.

    I had done extensive research on this but now that you mention it, I don't think I ever noticed if anyone was using UEFI when they were noting their partitions.

    I do have another question though. Ubuntu is uninstalled and the partition has been formatted and expanded back onto my C: drive, but somehow Ubuntu (at least I think it's for Ubuntu, it reads Internal Hard Disk or Solid State Disk) is still listed in my boot loader multiple times. I downloaded EasyBCD 2.2 and the first thing that I noticed is that there are a total of ELEVEN (11) entries in my bootloader; 10 for Internal Hard Disk or Solid State Disk and one for Windows 8. I would imagine this is because I had installed Ubuntu multiple times in a few different ways so each time it created a new boot file on my windows partition, although I am certain I did not install Ubuntu 10 times. I have deleted them all from the boot entries in EasyBCD, but they come back every time I reboot. This is also the case when I interrupt startup and go to "Boot Devices," Internal Hard Disk or Solid State Disk is listed 10 times. I want to get rid of all of this garbage and make it 100% factory to bypass the boot menu and boot directly into Windows 8 wthout all of those other entries in the bootloader. My plan is to eventually reinstall Ubuntu and I know that all of these other files will be a problem.
    You are very welome; hope it all is about to be sorted. I'll have to pass on the Ubuntu issues.
