Hello,
I have 2 hd ,WCW with win 8 , MAXTOR linux
First I was able to boot win selecting WCW by F12 keyboard

Having tried several distros , I used to set Grub on MAXTOR and able to dual boot win 8 too.

When I do F12 now , I can see 4-5 MBR entries (from past linux installations) ,however only one is working dualboot correctly.

All the other grub entries give error , furthermore selecting WCW I get another not working grub where before I was able to boot win 8

My question is how can I make a deep clean of all these entries? ( i don't mind to reinstall both OS)
Thank you
Emanuele

Manuele? Italiano? ti scrivo in italiano cosi' impari a presentarti.... Facilmente scarica da internet "EASUS PARTITION MASTER" versione gratuita.... tutte le partitioni che vuoi eleminare le risormatti NTFS e poi fai um MERGE con tutte esse. Ecco ti ritrovi con un bel po di spazio pulito e pronto ad essese utilizzato. Il tuo problema e' arrivato quando cerchi di scrivere su dischi usando alternativamente Win e linux; questi 2 non si amano molto e si fanno le scarpe l'un l'altro, e ti ritrovi con tante partizioni inutilizzabili. Io ti consiglio di usare computer separati cisi' i 2 amici non si vedono tra di loro e per te va tutto bene.... Ciao
