I've partitioned my drive with the El Capitan Installer into two partitions FAT and Journaled.

I installed El Capitan to the Journaled partition, I then installed Clover using MultiBeast.

After that I installed Windows 10 to the FAT partition.

It seems Windows 10 has overwritten the Clover bootloader.

I booted back into El Capitan using the Clover bootloader on the UniBeast USB stick.

Then I tried to reinstall the Clover bootloader in Legacy and UEFI Mode.

However, it seems Windows 10 always boots without taking me to Clover.

I mounted the EFI partition and there is no Microsoft folder which is where I'd assume the Windows 10 bootloader to be.

So how do I reinstall the Clover bootloader and overwrite the Windows 10 one (where ever it may be)?

You need to make your OSX partition active.
Use a bootable tool like Partmagic or use dispart on a Windows install disc or usb installer.

Do I have to make the partition active from Windows or can I do it from El Capitan?

Code:
/dev/disk0 (internal, physical):   #:                       TYPE NAME                    SIZE       IDENTIFIER
   0:      GUID_partition_scheme                        *256.1 GB   disk0
   1:                        EFI EFI                     209.7 MB   disk0s1
   2:                  Apple_HFS OSX                     127.7 GB   disk0s2
   3:                 Apple_Boot Recovery HD             650.0 MB   disk0s3
   4:       Microsoft Basic Data WINDOWS                 127.4 GB   disk0s4
/dev/disk1 (internal, physical):
   #:                       TYPE NAME                    SIZE       IDENTIFIER
   0:      GUID_partition_scheme                        *500.1 GB   disk1
   1:         Microsoft Reserved                         134.2 MB   disk1s1

/dev/disk2 (external, physical):
   #:                       TYPE NAME                    SIZE       IDENTIFIER
   0:     FDisk_partition_scheme                        *31.9 GB    disk2

Does it have to be the EFI partition or the OSX partition?

I've made the OSX partition active through fdisk, but it's still not booting correctly.

Code:
         Starting       Ending #: id  cyl  hd sec -  cyl  hd sec [     start -       size]
------------------------------------------------------------------------
 1: EE 1023 254  63 - 1023 254  63 [         1 -     409639] <Unknown ID>
*2: AF 1023 254  63 - 1023 254  63 [    409640 -  249385416] HFS+
 3: AB 1023 254  63 - 1023 254  63 [ 249795056 -    1269536] Darwin Boot
 4: 07 1023 254  63 - 1023 254  63 [ 251064592 -  248791416] HPFS/QNX/AUX
