Hey all. I am a noob here and I have been trying to setup Hackintosh for the first time. I am using Clover and trying to install Yosemite in my PC. My config is: Core i5-4590, 16GB RAM, MSI Z97 Gaming 5 and MSI GTX 970. I tried running different boot flags but no avail. In verbose mode the screen stops responding right after this image:

I have no idea what to do. Can anyone please explain what can I do here?

Also, amazing community!

I have two suggestions/ideas for you to try:

1) Did you choose the correct disk to boot? EFI or Px? It looks like you have an EFI boot system attempting a legacy boot. Just a guess mind you, I'm not sure.

2) The GTX 970 will give you fits since there is no native support for it in OSX. You will have to boot with on-board video and set the boot flag to nv_disable=1. Don't plug the monitor into that 970 card until after you've booted and installed the web drivers from nVidia.

3) ok, I have three not two suggestions :)-) - Where do you have the EFI folder? Is it in the EFI Partition or in the OSX drive partition?

1) Yes I chose EFI. I'm pretty sure I had chose UEFI only in the motherboard settings.
2) Okay I did not try this. Should I completely take it out or just keep it in and plug the monitor into the on-board video, just like you said?
3) It is in the OSX drive partition.

Also I have two RAM sticks and 3 drives connected through SATA. Should I also use only one of them?
