The EFI partition is where the instructions for your Hackintosh bootloader should be. This partition is created whenever OS X is installed on a system, but never utilized in a normal install. DellEFI installs a bootloader and custom kexts to boot the system there.
Cloning an OS X never clones this partition, as it is normally empty. You need to make a USB thumb drive with the Bootloader and DellEFI on it to boot up your system and re-rum DellEFI to finalize your restore.
Follow this guide to make a bootable USB drive to restore your mini, do the Windows instructions, as you mini has OS X installed already.

Ghost is a great piece of software, but it is not the best for OS X, as it takes forever. I would use Carbon Copy Cloner in the future, as it only takes an hour or so to preform the same task.
