Trying to change the volume name of my partitions but not having any luck. Suggestions or a better way than Clover Configurator?

You have to make a custom entry that matches the entry you're trying to change the title on. Use your Clover bootlog to see how to match the entry. The entry you show in your first image is an entry on the EFI partition (\EFI\Microsoft\Boot\bootmgfw-orig.efi), so make sure you use the GUID of the EFI partition (not the Windows partition).

I've used the UUID from the boot screen. Does this look correct?

The UUID in the boot screen and bootlog are the same. Do you know what the path would be and what else I should fill in. I've looked for examples but I can't find any anywhere.

I don't use Clover Configurator and just edit config.plist with xcode...

With my entry for Windows, I filled in Volume, Path, FullTitle, Type, and VolumeType:

Code:
<dict>
	<key>Volume</key>
	<string>**** guid goes here***</string>
	<key>Path</key>
	<string>\EFI\Microsoft\Boot\bootmgfw-orig.efi</string>
	<key>FullTitle</key>
	<string>Windows 8.1</string>
	<key>Type</key>
	<string>Windows</string>
	<key>VolumeType</key>
	<string>Internal</string>
</dict>

iOS,
You will have to select "Custom" + "Entries" button in the clover configurator in order to display custom entries. Also if you have windows 7 legacy boot, tap on legacy too.

The entries look like as attached screen shot. Don't worry about path just the correct UUID.

When I'm saving the plist where should it be saved at?
