Extra EFIs on Opencore bootmenu

I am seeing 2 EFIs on my OpenCore Bootmenu. I am not sure how these came about.


My system is as such:


I had Monterey on SSD (still have). So lately I bought an NVME and decided to install Ventura on it. So I renamed the EFI on Monterey, shutdown, disconnected all SATA drives, leaving only the PCI-NVME.


Then I installed Ventura on the NVME, copied the working EFI onto it etc. When this was working, I reconnected all the other drives and rebooted. I probably did an NVRamReset at some stage.


Not only do I see the 2 EFI on the Opencore bootmenu, I also see the following behaviours:


1. When I mount the Ventura partition (to do the config.plist stuff etc),   I see only 1 EFI (as usual). However when I try to eject this EFI, it will eject it but then a pop-up will emerge saying disks Update/Preboot and VM needs to be Force Eject. (See screen shots).


2. Using ESP Mounter Pro I notice that there are some untitles stuff etc. (See screenshots)


I have updated Ventura without issues BTW but these are annoying/concerning me.


Did I do some steps wrongly?

About "pop-up will emerge saying disks Update/Preboot and VM needs to be ejected" it's a normal behaviour we see in Ventura when you eject the EFI of the system disk, not other EFIs. 


About the other questions, I don't have ESP Mounter Pro but I suspect, if you have windows or linux, that they are unnamed EFIs of these systems. The Extra EFIs need more explanation, now I'm busy, I'll try later.

Read this to see if you can fix the extra EFIs. You must mount each EFI to add into them the .contentvisibility file with the word Disabled.
