Could you please add the option to install to the main HDD's EFI partition?

Hi All!
You can work perfectly with the BDU v2_184b and then simply update all the boot files from the last Clover distribution manually.

Check for false positive your antivirus software, BDU works under Windows 8.1 properly.

Could you please add the option to install to the main HDD's EFI partition?

On GPT disks do not need to rewrite their boot sectors, so you can mount the EFI partition under Windows and simply copy all the Clover boot files.

Yes we can. In Windows 7 we don't need anything special, just copy Clover over then proceed. In Windows 8.1 there are admin permissions and such, making the EFI partition hard to access, but not entirely impossible

The easiest way to get access the EFI partition under Windows 7/8/8.1:

1. Install   title_light.png x86 | x64

2. Start it with administrative privileges.

3. Run from the Far Manager command prompt the following command: 

mountvol Z: /s

where Z: is a drive letter of your choosing.

4. You can remove the mapping with next command: 

mountvol Z: /d


5. If we have more than one disk with EFI partition, run from the Far Manager command prompt the following commands:

C:> diskpart
DISKPART> list disk
DISKPART> list partition
DISKPART> select disk <N> ; (N - target disk with EFI partition, 0-based)
DISKPART> select partition <M> ; (M - target EFI partition, 1-based)
DISKPART> assign letter=Z ; (mount current part to a Z letter, any free letter)
DISKPART> list volume
DISKPART> exit
