Deleting a boot entry

After having switched to systemd-boot I still have


I deleted both entries in EFI with efibootmgr -B -b <bootnum>

Question: Is it ok to simply delete above directories with rm or should I use a specific utility?

I am asking because I don’t know if there could be pointers in the system to those 2 directories.

sudo rm -rf /path/to/directroy should do the job.

You could pass -v (- -verbose) as well to see what is being done.

Also you might want to uninstall the grub package (if not done already) and also remove

Ok, so simply delete the dirs. Thanks.

grub packages were uninstalled when I moved do systemd-boot.
