# OpenVPN is fairly simple since it works on OpenSSL. The OpenVPN server contains
# a root certificate authority that can sign sub-certificates. The certificates
# have very little or no information on who they belong to besides a filename
# and any required information. Everything else is omitted or blank.
# The client certificate and private key are inserted into the .ovpn file
# which contains some settins as well and the entire thing is then ready for

After losing access to rEFInd yet again (Windows 10 Anniversary Edition), I was able to find the proper invocation of BCDEdit thanks to a helpful person on StackOverflow. None of the Microsoft documentation mentions this, but you NEED single quotes around {bootmgr} for sure if you are in the PowerShell shell, but possibly also if you are in the Command Prompt. This allowed me to add a new entry for rEFInd and I've had to do this multiple times so I know it works on Windows 10.

bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\refind\refind_x64.efi 

becomes

bcdedit /set '{bootmgr}' path \EFI\refind\refind_x64.efi
