Hi all,
SO I hate posting 'plz help' threads, BUT I feel I owe it to myself, I've spent 24 hours (a few 6 hours sessions) trying to get my damn system to work. I have googled extensively tried several different methods,

I have an i7 6700k Gigabyte z170 gaming 3 and a gtx 970 G1.

I have tried a USB 2.0 in USB 2.0 slots I have tried discrete graphics and the GPU, tried nv_disable=1 with -v and without.
The furthest I can get is a no entry sign where I have to restart the computer.
I'm now trying clover configurator but it's not going well.


If anyone could help with this I'll be eternally grateful.
