Hey guys, I recently made a Yosemite installer using createinstallmedia, and using Clover r2696 as UEFI bootloader andwhen I enter the appropriate flags, and try to boot, it will stop for a second and then let me choose the boot device again, so essentially it's not doing anything. I have a nearly perfect Mavericks install (other than multi-monitor issues) and I don't understand why its not working. Any ideas?

Specs:

i7 4960X
GTX 780
64gb ram
Asus Rampage IV Extreme

ekica, I use Clover because it's UEFI and it works with Ubuntu, I had issues with chameleon. PimentelX86, I don't think this is an installer issue. Thanks though.
