Hi! I am trying to figure out if it is possible to install Windows after macOS on the same drive with Opencore. The guide by Dortania that I followed to configure my Hackintosh requires Windows already installed and I haven't installed it anywhere.
Can I install Windows, for example, by using the normal bootcamp utility in macOS?

Bootcamp does not work with non-Mac hardware. Disconnect the Mac OS drive, connect drive for Windows, install Windows, shutdown, reconnect Mac OS drive, boot to BIOS/UEFI and set BBS boot order to boot Mac OS drive first - save&exit, continue boot.

Did I make an EFI on my Windows SSD that I shouldn’t have? It’s the same as my Mac SSD.
Windows 10 installer will create an EFI partition it installed UEFI mode. This partition contains the Windows boot files.
