Thanks for the reply VioletDragon,

InjectIntel was not checked, but that didn't solve the problem.

Graphics Injector menu ->
InjectEDID:[ ]
Model: Intel HD Graphics 4600_
InjectIntel:[+]
FakeID:0x00000000_
FBConfig:NA_
Ports:01_
RefCLK:0_
LoadVideoBios:[ ]

Missing Bluetooth Controller indicates a Graphics Problem. At Clover Go to Options, Graphics, Make sure that (inject Intel) is checked then try booting.

Recommend to create a new post with you're Config.plist attached.

Here's the Config.plist from my USB drive.

Is there anything in particular I should be looking for?

I see NVidia under FakeID. I've just got the HD Graphics 4600 on the i7-4790
Under Graphics, ATI and NVidia are false, Intel is true.

<key>FakeID</key>
<dict>
<key>ATI</key>
<string>0x0</string>
<key>IMEI</key>
<string>0x0</string>
<key>IntelGFX</key>
<string>0x0</string>
<key>LAN</key>
<string>0x0</string>
<key>NVidia</key>
<string>0x0</string>
<key>SATA</key>
<string>0x0</string>
<key>WIFI</key>
<string>0x0</string>
<key>XHCI</key>
<string>0x0</string>
</dict>
...
<key>Graphics</key>
<dict>
<key>Inject</key>
<dict>
<key>ATI</key>
<false/>
<key>Intel</key>
<true/>
<key>NVidia</key>
<false/>
</dict>
</dict>

My plan is:
1. Get the USB drive working
2. Re-install El Capitan
3. if needed, reformat the EFI partition on my boot drive.

Thanks!

Your config file has no SMBIOS data / system definition. You won't get far at all without that. Do you have a copy of your original config.plist file ?

The system should be iMac 14.2.

I think this is the config.plist from the original install. It is certainly one that worked on my system.

I tried swapping out the config.plist on my USB and got the error:
service exited with abnormal code 255

Thanks

There is no system definition in that one either.

If you have Clover Configurator available, you could use that to generate a brand new config.plist with the exact settings you want, including the integrated graphics.

Alternatively, Unibeast will provide a generic one which can be modified for your particular hardware.

Intel HD 4600 is native with 0x0d220003. You're config clearly has no ig-platform-id. Another thing is that SMBIOS Trust/True is false not True. Use post_install_HD4600 & SSDT-IGPU from my Github. https://github.com/VoiletDragon/Z-H97N-WIFI-Patches

If you're using a USB Pen drive to reinstall then use installer_HD4600

Having no SMBIOS data would cause Clover to automatically choose one for the system but not a good idea. Better to choose iMac 14,2.
