Hi, whenever I try to boot into my USB for first time installation of el Capitan the screen goes black/dark grey, I've tried doing the boot flags -v and -x but both come up with "+++++++++" and so on. Any help is greatly appreciated and I am on unibeast 6.1 thanks in advance.


SPECS:
B85M-DS3H Mobo
Intel i5-4690k
Amd Asus r7 260x
1tb hdd
8gb of ram


So im pretty new to the world of hackintosh and I've tried looking up this issue but can't seem to find any solution, any help is greatly appreciated if you need any more info let me know.

Ok, I've got it working now at last. Found some info on another site - here's what I did...

1) Format USB flash drive again and redid Unibeast installation from scratch.

2) Run Clover Configurator and open config from USB EFI partition. Go to 'Install Drivers' and click on 'OsxAptioFix2Drv'.

3) Reboot and run USB installation (use nv_disable=1 if needed).

When installation was done I ran post-installation tools, audio etc. However, when I tried to boot from hard drive I got the black screen again so I booted from USB stick into El Capitan, downloaded official Clover (latest version is r3320) from Sourceforge and installed it to the main drive making sure 'OsxAptioFix2Drv' (under 'Drivers64UEFI) was ticked. This did the trick and El Capitan booted fine.
