I know ought to be so, but if i try to find it in finder i can find only on the pc.....
If i go and click in the usb, the search for the EFI, rename it in EFI_old if search in Finder on HD_MacOs i find the renamed one....
I was thinking to restart from the beginning


And still the Bluetooth doesn’t work, i have the icon, but can’t connect to keybord

1). Real EFI partition is hidden by default. Simple way to make it visible - use Clover Configurator EFI mount tab in bottom left of UI.
2). Each Apple formatted drive has it’s own EFI partition.
3). Internal Bluetooth on my NUC8i7BEH2 works horrible, internal intel wi-fi doesn’t work at all. I gave up and install apple wi-fi/Bluetooth via M.2 slot and adapter.

I always disconnect my NVMe apple formatted drives before Windows installation. I have no other simple solution to prevent Windows to write winbootloader onto apple EFI partition located on M.2 slot.

This happened to me also when I installed Linux on the 2.5 internal SSD. It over wrote the Mojave install on the M.2 drive.
No biggie, just took time to reinstall Mojave, but it's a PITA. Better off removing the M.2 drive before you instal any other OS.

I think that is a good tip for anyone using two drives with seperate operating systems. Another way is leave both drives unformatted and then install windows first and only format that drive. Then install Osx.

That is the way I ended up doing it.
