Open Terminal and type in "diskutil list" without the quotes and post the output for that HDD. For example here is my setup which is also Yosemite and Windows 8.1 on a single HDD using Clover installed to the EFI partition:Not quite the help I was looking for.
Changing to clover won't be easy for me, as I run a Windows 8.1 and Yosemite dual-boot on a single drive. If you'd like to give me some pointers, I'm open for them.

I setup my HDD using my other hack and created two partitions. The first one was for Yosemite formatted as HFS+ Journaled and the second one was for Windows 8.1 and formatted as "Free Space" with the drive setup as GPT. I installed Clover to the EFI partition and then booted Clover and installed Yosemite from a USB stick installer that I had made. The I connected a Windows 8.1 UEFI install USB and booted that. Used the Win 8 installer to format the "Free Space" and installed Windows 8.1. After reboot, if Windows 8 boots up before Clover then you will need to copy the 'CLOVERX64.efi' file from /EFI/EFI/Clover to the /EFI//EFI/Microsoft/Boot folder. Rename the 'bootmgfw.efi' to 'bootmgfw-orig.efi' and then rename the 'CLOVERX64.efi' to 'bootmgfw.efi'. Thats it.
I used to use Chameleon with my Mac Pro 1,1 before there were boot.efi files available for it and started using Clover when the 10.10 beta came out to test it and I would never use Chameleon again.
