Are they the .efi files that are in /boot/efi/EFI/BOOT on a system that
doesn't have the separate partition?
If the files are not on the right partition, then EFI won't boot from them.
Just on the separate partition front, if I boot between Win 10,
27 and Ubuntu 17.10 on the one machine, do I need 3 separate partitions
or can the 3 operating system share the one partition if I decide to
activate efi on my machine?
Yes, the point is that there is one partition for all the operating
systems to put their bootloaders in.
