When I make bootable USBs and plug them in to my main computer, There are (almost) always two UEFI partitions, like here:
^^Note that in this picture "USB: Samsung flash drive 1100" is a different USB stick also plugged in. The same thing has happened many times without it.
It doesn't seem to matter, selecting either boots equally well into uefi mode (as verified by
Since in all cases I had zero filled the SSD key and then made a USB from a prepared ISO (Both Arch and Ubuntu Server ISOs), I wouldn't expect there to be more than one UEFI partition, anything remaining from previous use should be wiped out. This happens with multiple drives of different makes (mostly Samsung and SanDisk Cruzer Glide).
I'm guessing that the extra UEFI is just some minor motherboard bug, but I'm still curious about what the exact cause might be.
The motherboard in question is an ASR x399 Taichi.
