gives you the volume UUID of each of the partition/volumes on your drives.
Use the output of terminal command diskutil list to determine the volume UUID corresponding to the partition containing your Linux boot files and enter it into the Clover config.plist
From what I see here, volume 7 is your Linux drive

@SiDiUS

I now see what may be your problem. Query - is your Clover boot loader installed in the ESP or in root?
Suggest this - mount EFI partition
Back up the EFI folder off-line to a USB
Delete the entire contents of the partition.
Download latest Clover from Sourceforge
Install Clover with the "UEFI" and "Install in the ESP" boxes unchecked.
This will install Clover in the root of your Mac OS install.
Replace the config.plist in the Clover folder, add fakesmc and ethernet kext to kexts/other and reboot.
Does your Linux icon appear in the Clover screen? Will it boot if you select the icon and hit enter?
