Could you post a screenshot of your disk? And maybe the terminal output of sudo parted -l.

Please add output of

inxi -Fazy
sudo efibootmgr -v

sudo parted -l

inxi -Fazy gives me command not found
sudo efibootmgr -v
gives me a list of every os that has ever been on my system

/dev/sda3 and /dev/sda4 can be made unallocated space by Gparted.

It looks like you are sharing the same ESP (/dev/sda1) between EnOs and Win. Keep that and remove the others as mentioned above by @Leon.


edit: sda2 could be deleted as well.
edit2: you have backed up your personal data from your Windows? Just wanted to double-check.

Thank you for your help. There was no personal Data in windows just one game that I finally got to work on EndeavourOS. You all have been great


you need to install inxi first to get the command works, it’s not installed by default

sudo pacman -S inxi
