Old kernel still exists in /boot

I had linux-mainline (AUR) installed on an old Archlinux

Then I re-installed Archlinux on the same partition /dev/nvme0n1p4

and my EFI partition is /dev/nvme0n1p1

I run these: (I follow the installation guide https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Installation_guide)

mount /dev/(root_partition) /mnt
mount --mkdir /dev/(efi_system_partition) /mnt/boot

mkinitcpio -P
grub-install --target=x86_64-efi --efi-directory=/boot --bootloader-id=(ID)
grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

But after I re-installed Archlinux, which I do not install linux-mainline

I found that there are still linux-mainline img and fallback-img, and boot options of linux-mainline in Advance Options

and I cannot delete them by `rm -f`

What can I do?

Write programs that do one thing and do it well.
Write programs to work together.
Write programs to handle text streams, because that is a universal interface.

Of course they still exist if you didn't wipe that partition. Why can't you delete them? Just saying it doesn't work doesn't help.

Re: Old kernel still exists in /boot

I found out one solution

1. delete files using 'rm -f'

2. sudo mkinitcpio  -P

3. sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg

The 1st step is nothing without the 2nd and 3rd step
