I was wondering how you hide an unnamed partition in the clover boot screen. If they are named, I know you can hide it in the GUI section of the clover configurator, but you have to hide it using the name, and there is no name on the partition I want to hide. When you hover over it, it just says "Boot windows from".

Thanks in advance for the help.

While the Clover boot screen highlight the icon you want to hide, press the spacebar and the name of the partition may be made clearer, i.e. HD2, HD3, Windows, Legacy etc.

If it is not any clearer what the name is make sure you add the names Windows, Legacy and HD to the Hide Volume section of your config, as shown in the screenshots below:

'Windows' is the name of the partition.

Add Windows to the Hide Volumes list as shown in the screenshots above in post #2.

If you don't know how to do this provide a copy of your config.plist and I will add the Hide Volume names.

I already had "Windows" in my hide volumes list. I deleted it and added it again but that did not help. Could there be another reason why this partition refuses to hide itself?

Partition doesn’t have a name. Or the name is not present in the hide volume list.

Have a look in your Bootlog and see which partitions are listed as being hidden and which are generating an icon on the clover boot screen. Then look to hide the Windows related partitions that aren’t required for you to boot into Windows.

You may need to use the GUID partition ID not a name to hide the icon. There will be a bit of trial and error involved in this process. As long as you don’t hide the macOS icon you can easily change or delete any incorrect entries to the hide volume list.

There are some hidden partitions that may or may not have specific names (Recovery, windows System Information, etc)... and you can't see them in Windows or Mac Drive Utility. You can see them and possibly change their names with a live CD or usb version of GParted.

Thank you i will look into that
If you are familiar with the MacOS Terminal app (command line), you can try:
diskutil list

and that should show you all partitions: type, name, size, etc.
