This might sound a stupid question but when I try to install Clover 5070 onto the Catalina USB installer stick it does not create a EFI partition. Instead it creates an EFI folder within the USB stick. Is this normal?

I am having boot issues due to this.
TIA

How did you manage to create an EFI partition on the Catalina USB installer?

The efi partition is created when you format your usb with Mac Os Extended (Journaled)/guid partition table.

I was finally able to get the EFI created. Started from scratch with a new USB. Now for some reason Clover 5070 does not display the Catalina installer at Clover boot screen. Will keep trying. Thanks for the inputs.
