Hey guys, I'm a noob at all this. I just built my first Hackintosh with the following specs:

ASUS Z170-A Motherboard

G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 16GB Intel Z170 Memory Kit;

MSI GeForce GTX 970 Video Card;

ASUS 24x DVD-RW Optical Drive;

Samsung 850 EVO SSD (w/ El Capitan installed on it);

WD HDD (blank, meant for a later Windows OS installation);

Intel i7 7700k CPU

I installed El Capitan on my SSD using tonymac's Unibeast/Multibeast method. I can boot from it successfully if I use my MacBook and select the SSD to boot from. The problem comes when I put the SSD back into the Hackintosh. Clover Bootloader comes up, I tell it to run OS X off of the Samsung, and the Apple logo comes up on screen. Then, the whole computer restarts, and keeps doing so. I've tried rerunning Multibeast with different options, I've enabled "Execute Disable Bit" in the BIOS, I've set Boot options to "UEFI Only," and quite frankly I'm running out of ideas. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!
