To be frank, Niresh is an modified version of macOS made espically to boot hackintosh into any machine. I myself haven't tried yet but could see some inner modification in image like change in UI. so if you're thinking of using your hackintosh as a primary os for long term then I recommend you to prepare a fresh USB stick following one of our guide. The following cataling guide by @ALiveVam you could try.

you can use your current hackintosh pc to make a usb bootable.

No, I had upgraded from Mojave. Yes you can use the same EFI as well but I recommend you to follow as per guide and later you can replace the config.plist and kext that you need. Remember when you boot and complete installer, you will still have an old Clover boot loader from which you can boot into the OS unlike for the first time. If you cannot boot after installing the OS you need to boot using the USB stick clover and replace the installed clover.

You've already installed the macOS on your pc so just formating the installed MacOS partition would be fine. After installation is complete you should be able to boot into windows and macOS. Make sure you backup your SSD, recommend you upload your EFI without the Microsoft folder in our resource section with the detailed system information. (Let me know if you cannot upload the file)

As already mentioned above installing hackintosh won't effect on the bootloader so nothing to worry about it either you are using UEFI or Legacy mode, your EFI containing microsoft and clover will be safe as is. and I don't understand why you are creating seperate 1 gb partition??

We do not support Niresh Distro. Use Fresh Image and make your own Hackintosh.
You can ask Niresh forum.

your provided screenshot cannot track an issue. Try uploading more screenshot with clear readable text or you can you try this clover and let me know of new KP.

It is an OS modification issue. Because Niresh Hackintosh image is modified.
How many times should i tell that now I am made bootable using the guide provided by you using the installer from Apple AppStore ..
