hi. I made the usb following the guide and can't boot past Clover. I boot to the USB but when i select the installer nothing happens and Clover just refreshes. Not even the "scan entries" screen, just like someone clicked that button within Clover to refresh boot entries of whatever. I can't get past that. Thank god I'm just trying to dual boot El Capitan and Sierra... at least I have something working. Inspiron 5521. Only OS installed is OS X. Don't want to install a different OS, even for diagnostics. Can boot to a live Ubuntu USB environment if needed. And for those who noticed the username is the same once that started the Ethernet Self Assigned IP thread recently under El Cap laptop support (I'm the one who refuses to install Windows), I don't need to fix Ethernet anymore because my external USB wifi adapter came in today and is working perfectly. So now my only problem is trying to install Sierra. Thanks in advance.
