I have a dual boot system with windows 10 and el capitan hackintosh on my lenovo y50-70. I having problems on windows partition, so i must do a system update buti get a error,and i think that the problem is the bootloader changed for install OSX. So... i can make a windows update without get problems with osx boot ? A windows update overwrite the bootloader,right? What i can do? I use OSX for work,so it's absolutely important for me,its and the data on it.

You will need to provide details.

I'm no looking for a Windows problems solution, i know thatThat this is a OSX/Hack forum. I have a Windows problem, so i need update it. I'm asking "if i update/reinstall Windows, the bootloader (dual boot) That i have now is overwritten, and i can't access to El Capitan (i have problems to boot OSX)?"

2°question: the dual boot System with window 10 /El capitan can is a problem/obstacle for the Windows 10 update? (because i get a error that makes me wonder it)

Sounds like you failed to make an entry for Clover with efibootmgr in Linux.
It is covered in post #2 of the guide:

Avoid messing with Windows boot files (by setting a UEFI entry for Clover instead of renaming bootmgfw), and Windows updates should work without issue.
