Perhaps the following document could be of some help. I had to use it to
install Debian Stretch on a different laptop with EFI. So, in my case, one
of the partitions is not encrypted. In that sense, the situation is
somehow similar to your fat16 (/dev/sda1) partition. The document refers
to Jessie, but I used it to install Stretch no problem.
