Hello!

I am trying to install El Capitan on my new rig, and I have created my bootable USB through clover and selected the Legacy Boot Mode option. Once I plugged it in and selected the install from USB, my screen goes black and nothing happens. Where do I go from here?

This is my first hackintosh build, and I have the following components:

GA-Z170X-UD5
EVGA GeForce GT 740
CORSAIR RM Series RM650 650W
Intel Core i7-6700K
Seagate Desktop HDD ST2000DM001 2TB
SAMSUNG 850 EVO 2.5" 500GB SATA
Crucial Ballistix Sport LT 16GB

Thank you guy all so much!

Turn off the Serial Port, VT-D, Speed Step, etc. Try another USB port.

Are there other OSes on that PC?

Nope the computer is blank, and I turned all of those off. I still get a blank screen after the initial clover screen where I select to boot from USB.

In general the entire clover loading process is very slow.

Could the issue be with my selecting of the Legacy Boot Mode option?

I was able to fully install El Capitan and run Multibeast, and I rebooted as was told; however, now I am unable to boot. Everytime I click boot from El Capitan, the apple logo appears, and I am returned to the previous clover boot screen - in a boot loop. I have already input a boot argument for my graphics card nvda_drv=1. I was previously able to reach my desktop, but after adding the default boot volume and boot timeout then rebooting, I became stuck in this loop.

What could be going wrong?
