I have windows (in sda with its efi loader into sda2) before I installed fedora i disconected disk sda becouse i didn't want have grub menu if not that i would select the OS from Bios. The problem is that every time I start an operating system, new repeated entries are generated that refer to the 2 hard disks. Which I have to manually delete because they become excessive. What would be the best solution to not have the problem that these repeated entries are generated automatically (I would like to be able to select the OS from the Bios but if there is no alternative I would have to install the grub inside dev / sdb1?) Which would be the procedure guide for do what?)

Thank you very much for any contribution.

Sounds like a bug in the UEFI implementation. Can you check if there are any updates available?

How about the UEFI firmware from the manufacturer of your computer?

Enter your bios . Get to EFI or Secure Boot Options . You will hopefully find there a menu where you have to select the fedora efi bootloader to a safe bootloader to use. Mark it as safe and save you bios settings.

ACER has made us runing in circles for hours before we found this bios option.

I had disable secure boot by default the only thing into boot options that i had not modified was change the option boot Legacy+UEFI to only UEFI this did in the next restart regenerate grub changing grubshimx64 for grubx64 and it solve the issue stopping of entries autogeneration


@Rdtcustomercate was right I had to load the authorized signatures for fedora in the Bios on the Bios Board MSI click 4 is hidden in the windows 8 option whose entry is disabled by default. When the active one appears a new option (that was invisible) to select signatures to be imported during the loading of the Bios. As he assured this was the problem which is finally solved thanks to him.

Thank you.
