Phantom Windows Partition

I had Windows 10 installed as a partition for a little while, then recently deleted it. Now when I restart my computer it sometimes still tries to boot into Windows and shows a blue screen error. When I look at Startup Disk & Disk Utility there is no sign of the phantom partition. Anyone know how to clear this out without too much drastic action?

Did you use Boot Camp to remove Windows?

If not, that could be the cause.

I did not. How do I resolve now though? 😉 This is what I get when I run the assistant.

If that doesn't work, then start Googling for removing Windows from macOS.

 

Note: I have never used Boot Camp and Windows on a Mac, so what I know is just from reading various Mac related forums for years and years.  Sometimes something sticks.
