Instead of doing so much, you can simply use the free tool, "Minitool Partition Wizard".
Correct me if I am wrong

I had the exact same problem as you. Even though the partition I had was labelled as "System", it was not classified as an active partition (according to MiniTool Partition Wizard) and therefore my BIOS boot options could not find the partition.Hello, guys!
I have same problem (not enough space on device.....) and i am found this forum.
I tried it and i have the EFI partition assigned on V.
EFI partition is hidden in diskpartion - not system. Is it normal???
I uploaded image here : http://2.1m.yt/faB8kE2Fv.png - thats my screenshot.

Since crazyboy's method didn't work, I instead attempted to extend the 100 MB EFI partition, and the Disk Management software built into Windows would not work for this as it does not allow you to shrink or extend the EFI Partition under any circumstances.
My first attempt was done using a GParted (GNOME Partition Editor) Live USB installation. This did not work for me because for some reason, GParted did not allow me to shrink my Windows Partition (even though it allowed me to do this earlier). Even if this didn't happen, GParted would be ridiculously inconvenient to use for this purpose anyways, since every time I wanted to shrink the Windows partition and put the unallocated space behind the partition rather than in front (before the program restricted the resizing of the Windows Partition in the first place), the program would want to move the entire 250 GB Windows Partition for whatever reason (this would have taken hours, and if a failure occurred within that time, it could have devastated the data).
So instead, I attempted to use MiniTool Partition Wizard. The 16 MB Microsoft Reserved Partition was right in-between the EFI Partition and the Windows Partition, so I deleted it (without any problems at the boot surprisingly!). Then, I shrinked the Windows Partition by 300 MB and extended the EFI Partition using that unallocated 300 MB. Once the program restarted my computer and applied all of these changes, I was able to carry on with my Clover installation.
