I am not sure what an EFI System Partition is, and I don't think I have one, and maybe that's a nice chunk of my problem....?
I think the sda1 partition was meant to be your EFI partition, but it has the wrong partition type (it should be a VFAT one, not Linux) and it must be formatted as fat32, with the right EFI files IN them. After that, it normally is mounted in Linux as /boot/EFI (with sda2 being yoour root (/) partition).
