OK, as a noob, here's what I did to get it working:

Followed Tony's instructions on the first page of this post.

Booted to USB from bios and installed Yosemite over Mavericks.

Rebooted to USB and started Yosemite. Perfect!

Ran Mulibeast with the settings Tony advised.

Rebooted to Yosemite and found grey screen/white slash circle. sh*t.

Booted from my backup and loaded the Mulibeast settings I saved when I installed Mavericks.

Booted to Yosemite and all is well.

This is on a GA-Z68MX-UD2H-B3



**SCRUB THAT**

For some reason, on every subsequent reboot I still get the grey screen with the white slashed circle.

Any ideas..??

I''m having problems to boot after installation. I was able to install with bootflags -f -v- -x but after running multibeast with all the options shown in the guide(I have tried only the options shown in he guide and those options with kexts for audio and etherent) and I cannot boot, the loading bar goes to halfway and stays there, the only way to boot Yosemite is with boot flag -x(and the booting is slow compared with Mavericks)

I had a working Mavericks in my system and was booting fine and fast. The instructions to install were very straight forward in the following;
http://www.tonymacx86.com/mavericks...nstall-10-9-asus-p8z77-v-pro-succecssful.html

In verbose mode (-v) the last lines I see when the system hangs are:
68.584756: ATHR: unknown locale: 21
considerRebuildOfPrelinkedKernel com.apple.kext.OSvKernDSPLib triggered rebuild

Note: I have tried the update instructions and the clean installation and I get the same result(stuck ath halfway the loading bar) on both procedures

My build:
Asus P8Z77-V (no virtualization and boot from other OS)
I7-3770
Asus Radeon HD7870
16GB Kingston RAM
120GB Intel SSD 530 Series

Chimera boots, hard drive progress bar counts off the delay time, screen turns gray. A message appears in white text in the upper left corner: An error has occurred during startup. Pause for 5 seconds.

Then it starts up just fine. What could this error be? I assume it's generated by the boot loader?

The issue is that I am stuck at apple logo and progress bar that does not fill up. I can not boot to desktop to run MB.

Anyone know how to fix this? Getting this load screen that stops at halfway and won't continue. It's like this for the regular Yosemite install as well as the USB. I got into Yosemite once, installed some multi beast settings, restarted, then this started happening...aaaahhhhh:confused:

Followed the guide, installed over Mavericks - Success!!

Hump #1 [PCI Configuration starting... ] stuck
Solution: Remember to check
Drivers -> System -> AppleACPIPlatform Rollback > 10.9.5 AppleACPIPlatform Rollback

Hump # 2 Audio Not working
Solution: Install AL889 from MultiBeast 6.1.0 (NOT THE LATEST MULTIBEAST). Look under Downloads Archive. All Credits to davidhyde18 post.

But got one last problem to solve - slow boot time...
