Not sure if this is only issue, but you can only have one efi partition per hard drive.

/dev/sda2 821,248 1,353,727 532,480 EFI System partition
/dev/sda3 1,353,728 1,615,871 262,144 Microsoft Reserved Partition (Windows)
/dev/sda4 1,615,872 479,711,215 478,095,344 EFI System partition

Gparted used boot flag to define efi partition in gpt partitioned drives. It is not the same as a boot flag in MBR(msdos) partitioned drives. But all booting with UEFI is from efi partition.

Use gparted and remove boot flag from sda4.
