So Ive had my work Mac Mini since about 2014~2015 with Yosemite 10.10.5 and have never updated it (i dont even remember how i installed it). Today i wake up to a Boot1=error and ive tried a few things already to attempt to solve the issue, but no luck.

My specs:
-H97N-WIFI
-BIOS F9
-HD4600 Graphics
-Intel Core i3 4360 CPU

My BIOS Settings are the same from Storks Hector Build:
M.I.T. > Advanced Memory Settings > X.M.P. > Profile 1
BIOS Features > Boot Options Priorities UEFI
BIOS Features > VT-d > Disable
BIOS Features > Windows Features > Other OS
BIOS Features > Boot Mode Selection > UEFI only
Peripherals > Initial Display Output >IGFX
Peripherals > Intel Processor Graphics > Enable
Peripherals > XHCI Mode > Auto
Peripherals > EHCI Hand-off > Enable

What Ive tried:
I went ahead and followd this guide: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/boot0-error-the-official-guide.65706/
and began the process of re-making a unibeast drive to boot and follow the terminal process to fix the faulty drive... but the problem is making the unibeast.

I was able to download Yosemite from another fully working hackintosh running El Capitan and followed this guide, installed the Clover EFI Bootloader, installed the kexts and standard config.plist on the same guide: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/how-to-install-os-x-yosemite-using-clover.144426/

Im able to boot into clover and pick the existing Yosemite installation or my Yosemite Unibeast, if i click on the Unibeast, it gives me an arrer on the white mac loading screen. If i click on the existing Yosemite installation on the only hard drive installed, it reaches the white Mac loading screen, loads until half way and reboots the computer.

I honestly do not know what to do anymore, any help is welcome for either problem. Below are the pictures of the error, and i also booted in Verbose mode so you guys can see below and additionally im attaching my current config.plist

Thankyou In advance TonymacX86 family

Heh, as I've thought about this.. Oh boy.

I'd be tempted to download High Sierra to then use the High Sierra Unibeast to create a installer. Before removing the installer you can open Clover Configurator and edit the default config.plist to add -f and -v on the Boot page. I think -f was deprecated on new macOS, but it was very useful in back then. Then try booting it to see if it works. If it boots in to the installer okay, reboot and at the Clover boot menu select Yosemite and see how it goes. You should get a hint from the -v verbose output, and the -f avoids the kext cache which might be loading files and settings that no longer match your setup.

Looking at your screen shots the first one looks like the USB memory stick is lost when the OSX kernel starts, it can't complete the booting process as a result. This could be OSX not having a driver for the USB or the USB settings are not working. I've also had this issue due to memory allocation, there are different versions of AptioMemoryFix, sometimes there is a setting for above 4G under chipset in the BIOS. The second screen shot looks like a problem with bios settings that prevents the apple power management to successfully start up, or maybe redundant kexts, or simply a kext cache that doesn't' match the current system as it is.

I have found it easier to start with a natively supported graphics card and get everything else working, and then deal with turning on integrated graphics. I notice in your signature that the Z77 machine has such a card. Not getting the integrated graphics configured properly can also hang power management, integrated graphics also seems to complicate the memory allocation listed above. I just went through something similar, if I enabled integrated graphics I couldn't boot, the solution turned out being a different AptioMemoryFix. Clover can auto patch a lot of things, as well as Lilu and WhateverGreen. You can download those separately and add them to the Clover USB stick in EFI/Clover/Kexts/Other to see if they help. I would also go in clover and check to see if on the ACPI page that PluginType is selected with 1 chosen. This should allow Clover to autogenerate the necessary data for OSX to load.

I would also try a different profile, instead of Mac3,1 you could try an iMac that matches your processor generation. Clover Configurator will show this when you go through the options. The closer you can match the hardware the better OSX will load the correct drivers.

It really shouldn't be that hard but since most people have moved to the newest versions it is going to be more trial and error.

Wish I had a more targeted suggestion, it's the things I would do.

Hey thank you very much for your detailed response. Im going to try pretty much everything you mentioned, as of now, the major problem is that i cannot into my unibeast installation in order to fix the Boot0 problem. Ill report back as soon as i get any result
