Hello there!
It's my first attempt and everything is working flawlessly:

GPU: RX480 powercolor

I've been struggling with boot inconsistency, so I started to investigate it.

This plist is a result of UNIBEAST UEFI, the only custom string in there:
<key>FakeCPUID</key>
<string>0x0506E3</string>
<key>KernelCpu</key>
<true/>

The problem:
If I shutdown or restart OSX, it wont boot, gives me a ⃠ prohibited sign.
If I press my desktop reboot button and it will normally boot again no problems.

Verbose output:
If I try to boot using verbose it gives me the well known Kernel cache error.

What I found:
If I shutdown or restart OSX, it wont boot, gives me a ⃠ prohibited sign.
- I can press a button and go back to clover menu, and I have noticed it added "00" in my cpufakeid. I think this is why it wont boot, it has a wrong cpuID. If I change the fakecpuid to "0x0506E3" instead of "0x000506E3"(notice the added 00) it wont save the settings and still wont boot. The only way to make it boot again is to manually restart the machine.
- The first time I noticed this fakecpuid problem and could boot osx after manually rebooting the desktop, I ran after the config.plist in my EFI partition to see if the cpuID was correct, and it was correct, every time.

Help me fellas!

I have noticed that it mess my boot only if I shutdown or restart OSX. If I manually force shutdown the computer it will boot perfectly next time...
