Hi All!
I installed Yosemite yesturday for the third time. Frustrated that there is no EFI partition being made, but I would find a EFI folder in My Drive.
Today I was trying this command "diskutil list" but got shocked that the EFI partition is being made in my USB Drive!
Is there anyway i can make an EFI partition on my drive? I am making sure that I can make an EFI partition, If not, I will install clover in the USB Drive as I have Mac installed in an External Hard Drive for testing and would be installing it in my Main HDD after testing that it works.

what happens when you install clover and point it to your hard drive?

Hello,
Thanks for replying quickly!

It would make an EFI folder in My Drive but when I select to boot into Mac, it takes a lot of time to load, I had installed a kext for my battery and since that this is what been happening.

Hello,
The EFI Partition is empty,
anyways can i just install clover in my USB EFI Partition and then mount the partition and copy it to My Drive would this make it work?
As I have said, Mac is installed in my External HDD for testing my computer and then I will be installing Mac OS in my Main HDD.
