  1. I tried 5 sticks with the same result. And I used a installer image to create USB installer, then it worked. Thus, there must be something wrong with the procedure or other causes. The problem now is I can't make my SSD installed with Mac OS to boot, apparently with the same issue as the USB sticks. But this time I cannot use any disk image as the USB to overcome to problem. I will try again as I have been busy the days before. Thank you again.
  2. What I did to install Clover was no difference from the linked tutorial. The selected options in Clover installations are according to the suggested values for UEFI only boot method. Thus, I really can't see any deviation from what I did. And this is very mysterious all the USB and SSD lead to the same error. Anyway to verify whether the boot loader and the EFI partition are installed correctly?
  3. I've almost done with my installation. However, I only got the same "Reboot and select proper boot device" message after installing Clover on the SSD. Can only boot with the USB at the moment. What Can I try? I am starting to doubt whether there is something missing in all the USB and SSD I created so far, as none of them can boot with Clover and display the same error message. Let me verify this with you, do I format the drive with GUID Partition Table and Mac OS Extended (Journaled) and then install the OS X with the guided procedure? I really can't see what I have missed in my steps. Attached also please find the diskutil list output so that you may have better idea with my drive structures. The bootable USB is /dev/disk1
  4. I created the USB with this guide. It just look like everything is properly installed: http://www.rampagedev.com/?page_id=144 This is my first encounter to Clover. One question on future system update, do I just update the system with the AppStore? What is the safe way to do system update? Thanks so much for your kind help!
  5. On the other hand, I am still very curious why the USB drives I created were not bootable. I created the USB drives with one Macbook Pro and one older white Macbook in various attempts. Any clue why they are not created properly? I'd verified many times my procedures according to the relevant tutorials.
  6. It seems like all the USB drives I created were not able to boot, as I finally could boot with the Olarila's USB drive image you suggested. I am trying to install now. Fingers cross I will make it work soon. Will keep you posted on my progress!
  7. Please see screen shot Unfortunately, the result is the same with the config.plist you modified. What's the next step I can do?
  8. I zipped it and now it's okay. Need to work early tomorrow morning and go to bed now. Hope you can figure out what's the cause. Thanks a million! config.plist.zip
  9. How can we edit the config.plist together? Do I send to you?
  10. Yes, I did both. The interesting thing is that there seem to be no other case of this particular error for people with similar hardware. That makes me very curious about cause. I even clear the CMOS and start from square one a few times.
  11. Thank you very much! I live in Hong Kong, which is +8 time zone, what time is appropriate for you? I successfully installed 10.8 with Chimera before with the same hardware, only with an older display card. Frustratingly, this is far more difficult for me with Clover, not even being able to boot the USB! Anyway, I do not have any computer background, even I spent a decent amount of time to work on my Hackintosh builds. Thanks a million!
  12. I tried different ports, in most of the time USB2.0 ports, ending up with the same error. The weird thing is that there seem to be a lot of successful install out there with very similar hardware. I will check out the Olarila's method anyway.
  13. I am in a desperate situation trying to build a El Capitan system after 5 straight days of attempts. And I would like to seek some advice from any of you, as I am not able to find a solution online. Though I am not a computer expert, I've been able to build a few Hackintosh with Chameleon over the years. And this is my first attempt with Clover. However, I have not been able to boot the USB, with only the "Reboot and select proper boot device" error every time. I have follow 2 tutorials and both lead to the same result: 1: This one with almost exactly the same hardware and Bios version as mine, except my display card is a little more powerful, same brand. Thus, I verified my procedures many times, still no luck: Link about Tonymac removed 2: This is another method I tried: http://www.rampagedev.com/?page_id=144 I've verified the Bios settings many times and tried 5 USB drives. But the results have been the same. And it doesn't seem to be a hardware issue because the computer runs flawlessly with Win 10 on a separate HD. Since there are successful cases similar to my cases, I am very curious what went wrong with my procedure, though I have to confess that I am not a computer expert. Thus, it is highly appreciated if anyone could give some insight into my issue. I can attach the screen shots of my Bios set up for your study into it. My system configuration: Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 (F12 Bios) I7 3930K CPU 64GB Ram GTX960 4GB display card Thank you very much in advance!
  14. Just wanna ask is it normal. According to some posts on Hackintosh, it seems to be way too hot than normal. It's stable so far, but I would like to see if I need to do something to make my system safe. My config as follow: Below is my config: Gigabyte GA-x79-UD5 w/ 3930K CPU Zotec HD-6870 display card 64GB ram Corsair 240GB SSD
  15. GA-X79-UD5 Mountain Lion 10.8.3 build without sound

    Solved with some instruction from a friend. I do not have a clue what it is so better not to put some vague information here.
