For some reason I too am ending up with an EFI (partition?) on my computer after running Clover. On my flash drive I only have an empty EFI-Backups directory as seen here:

How did you fix that? Is just copy pasting the EFI folder from the other "partition" to my flash drive OK?
From what I could find the EFI partition is normally hidden and is used for the UEFI booting. It is mounted automatically by the Clover installer because that is where you need to copy the kexts and stuff. Step2 parts 18-22 of the guide refer to this mounted hidden partition on your thumb drive. Copy the files it refers to into the EFI folder on this mounted EFI partition.
Also, when you get to Step 5, parts 6 through 8 now refer to the hidden EFI partition on the drive with the new Yosemite installation.
PS - use a USB 3.0 thumb drive if you can, it's PAINFULLY slow on a USB 2.0 thumb drive (which the vast majority of small capacity drives are).
