A full erase and reinstall (formatting the ENTIRE drive) should fix it, but you also might try clicking the text at the bottom of the screen to see if it will let you just hide/remove all but one of those. You can also change the time that it will sit on that screen. I set mine to 3(?) seconds. I feel this is enough time to make a choice, but not so long that booting is delayed to a degree that bothers me.
    Thank you! I set the time to 0 seconds and I don't think those other copies will be any problem so I'll just let them be. Don't really feel like do anything major with the system after finally getting it to work.

    In the process of trying to recover, you installed several versions of Windows 10.
    To remove other versions of Windows 10 you don't need, download EasyBCD. In the program choose to View your Entries then Edit the Boot menu removing the versions of Windows you don't need.
    Of course starting over, deleting all partitions and doing a clean install is the best way to do this.
