    That did not work. I deleted the partitions and I still get the dual boot choice screen after I reboot my laptop. What am I doing wrong?

    What are these stubs and can they be removed post-Install? Are they just cluttering up the partition table? Do they serve a purpose for the running CloudReady OS?

    Dear Neverware,

    I cannot get rid of CloudReady's EFI.
    After having erased all disk partitions, I am still being prompted to choose CloudReady or Windows.

    Please help me resolve the issue.

    Hi, I am experiencing this same issue. The dual-boot screen still shows up after all partitions are deleted. Any advice?

    This might work

    Download easyuefi, click free download, then delete the CloudReady efi entry and/or

    (tested up in-till the command) so do this at your own risk

    reboot in to windows 10 recovery by holding down shift while choosing restart, keep holding it till you see options,

    troubleshoot - advanced options - start-up settings - restart

    pick windows in the CloudReady grub bootloader, you should now be seeing a blue screen,

    press f10 - press 1 - troubleshoot - advanced options - command prompt

    now enter "bootrec /FixMbr" this should remove the CloudReady grub bootloader, 

    if not try :

    bootrec /FixBoot
    bootrec /RebuildBcd

    this is all at your own risk, me and the CloudReady team are sorry to see you go

    good luck

    The only way that I found to solve it is to install ubuntu in dualboot. When you install Ubuntu in dualboot the mbr of Windows is solved and after you can to delete ubuntu and choose the first entry at "windows boot" in Bios.

    Hi guys here this method works 100% to remove cloudready efi i tried
    1.delete all partition above mentioned.
    2.you will need bootable windows installation usb and boot the usb
    3.on windows installation click repair your computer at bottom left
    4.Go To Troubleshoot->Advance option->command prompt
    type following commands:
    -diskpart
    -sel disk 0 (note 0 is your windows installed hard disk)
    -list par
    -sel par x(where x=partition no,please Note type=system,and size must be 99mb or 100mb or more of efi partition) This is efi partitton i mean
    -for eg:my efi partition is 1 so,
    -sel par 1 (your may be different partition number)
    -format fs=fat32 label=System
    -list par
    -select par 1
    -assign letter=b:
    -exit
    -dir b:
    -mkdir b:\EFI
    -mkdir b:\EFI\Microsoft
    -cd /d b:\EFI\Microsoft
    -bootrec /fixboot
    -bcdboot c:\windows /l en-us /s b: /f ALL(note c:\ is directory where windows is installed)
    -exit
    click continue and reboot

     

    note !!!!!!!!!!! dont do this step if the above method still dont work

    after doing   this  step  -bcdboot c:\windows /l en-us /s b: /f ALL

    bootrec /FixMbr

    bootrec /FixBoot
    bootrec /RebuildBcd

    OK so originally my partitions looked like that:

    Partition ### Type Size Offset
    ------------- ---------------- ------- -------
    Partition 1 System 512 MB 1024 KB
    Partition 2 Reserved 128 MB 513 MB
    Partition 3 Primary 237 GB 641 MB

    Now they look as follows:
    Partition ### Type Size Offset
    ------------- ---------------- ------- -------
    Partition 1 System 512 MB 1024 KB
    Partition 2 Reserved 128 MB 513 MB
    Partition 3 Primary 205 GB 641 MB
    Partition 4 Unknown 512 B 206 GB
    Partition 5 Unknown 512 B 206 GB
    Partition 6 Unknown 512 B 206 GB
    Partition 7 Unknown 512 B 206 GB
    Partition 8 Unknown 512 B 206 GB
    Partition 9 Unknown 512 B 206 GB
    Partition 10 Unknown 512 B 206 GB
    Partition 11 Unknown 512 B 206 GB
    Partition 12 Unknown 512 B 206 GB
    Partition 13 Unknown 512 B 206 GB
    Partition 14 Unknown 512 B 206 GB
    Partition 15 Unknown 512 B 206 GB
    Partition 26 Unknown 8 MB 206 GB
    Partition 21 Unknown 512 B 206 GB
    Partition 22 Unknown 512 B 206 GB
    Partition 24 Unknown 512 B 206 GB
    Partition 25 Unknown 512 B 206 GB
    Partition 17 Unknown 16 MB 206 GB
    Partition 19 Unknown 16 MB 206 GB
    Partition 23 Primary 1024 MB 206 GB
    Partition 27 System 16 MB 207 GB
    Partition 20 Unknown 3048 MB 207 GB
    Partition 18 Unknown 3048 MB 210 GB
    Partition 16 Primary 24 GB 213 GB

    Does this mean I can delete all partitions from 4-27?
