It is normal to have many choices in boot menu...

To change it you need edit grub files (in /boot/grub/grub.cfg; /etc/default/grub), it is little hard, but Daniel Ritcher make the hard work and release Grub-Customizer , the easy way to customize grub.

To install it:

Code: Select all
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:danielrichter2007/grub-customizer
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install grub-customizer

Open grub customizer, look at the first tab (entries) you will be all the OS installed, Linuxmint, recovery, memtest, windows,

Delete recovery, memtest, etc, keep only LM14 and windows entries.
