*sigh* so this is my first hackintosh, and everything went smoothly...at first.
First clean install of OS 10.11.4 on the SSD went fine, did a multibeast install, and then on restart, keeps panicking/restarting right at boot (ACPI panic thing)! Tried various things—changing BIOS settings, booting from USB, recovery HD, etc. Wiped the USB, put in USBInjector.kext and also the Pike A. config.plist edits. Still wont boot after install.
Then I tried the install on the HDD, and it totally works fine. I can mess around in the SSD and its attached EFI Volume, but I'm at a loss. Must be a problem with the SATA for the SSD?
Also, haven't had to mess with the NVidia web drivers yet, because I've done the whole install off of the discrete graphics with only some minor stripey stuff happening at the OS X login screen (miraculously). Anyone else had this problem, or have any ideas?

Oh also, not using the latest version of the BIOS...didn't want to risk it because it seemed to be working
[EDIT]
WOOHOO was simple as replacing the contents of the EFI partition on the SSD :D YAY HACKINTOSH
