I mounted the EFI partition on windows and turns out i have clover on my EFI Patition but for some reason it does not boot into clover hmmmmmm...
EDIT #2:
I just renamed the bootmgfw.efi file on EFI/Microsoft/Boot/ to bootmgfw-orig.efi now I can boot into clover but my Mac partition does not show up only my windows partition
EDIT #3:
Just copied HFSPlus.efi into EFI/CLOVER/drivers64UEFI/

Please help me to proceed with Hackintosh installation in Dual boot mode. My systemconfiguration is with two disks and the details are as follows -

DISKPART> list disk

Disk ### Status Size Free Dyn Gpt
-------- ------------- ------- ------- --- ---
Disk 0 Online 111 GB 0 B *
Disk 1 Online 232 GB 1024 KB *

DISKPART> select disk 1

Disk 1 is now the selected disk.

DISKPART> list partition

Partition ### Type Size Offset
------------- ---------------- ------- -------
Partition 1 Recovery 450 MB 1024 KB
Partition 2 System 100 MB 451 MB
Partition 3 Reserved 16 MB 551 MB
Partition 4 Primary 231 GB 567 MB
Partition 5 Recovery 460 MB 232 GB

On Disk 1, Windows is Installed and working Properly. Booting is configured for UEFI and BIOS shows Disk 1 UEFI entry alone.

I am planning to install Hackintosh (High Sierra) on Disk 0. Please clarify my doubts -

1. When Clover is installed on Disk 0, Is it going to have its on UEFI partition and UEFI entry in BIOS for booting?
2. The Hackintosh/Clover Install is going to tamper the UEFI entry of Disk 1?
3. Whether my windows setup is going to distrub in any way?

Please help me.

1. yes
2. no, not if you disconnect before installing Mac OS & Clover (or disable the drive's SATA port in UEFI/BIOS)
3. no
