[Fw_Os_Forum] Using Multiple caddied disks to teach students OS installation etc

I have a unusual problem with UEFI

I have a lab of 20+ PCs which is used continuously - each student uses a numbered "Caddied" hard drive for their installation exercises
In this way we can have several classes doing installation exercises consecutively.

Problem...  If "BIOS" (I know it's not ) is in UEFI mode the system records all the previous installations as if it were a multiple boot system.
Also, as the other installations no longer exist, if you click a previous installation in error, the OS is not found...

Switching to "Legacy Only" mode allows the caddied drives to operate normally.

However,  Is this the only way?  Can /UEFI be configured to accept multiple, dismountable drives?

Any help in setting up a stable environment for this lab would be appreciated
