    You can't download Yosemite, legally, as Apple removed it from the Mac Apple Store, unless you've downloaded it from the MAS previously; then, it's loaded in your "Purchases" page in the MAS. Any other source is considered pirated software as Apple only distributes Yosemite. So, you're better off with El Capitan, which soon will not be available as Sierra is coming out today. BTW, Sierra is what El Capitan should have been, IMO.

    Hey I got stuck, but I'm not sure which was correct and which wasn't. I got to the install Yosemite screen and it was installing, but, when it got to the end it got stuck at "1 second remaining". It just sits there and doesn't do anything. I don't know what I did wrong. :\ Please help

    "1 second remaining" is a lie, I have seen it take 20 minutes or more.

    Okay, I'll give it another shot. Thanks for that. Also, where it says this:

    Would this mean that I select the "Install for UEFI booting only" option in Clover?

    Edit - Was able to install Yosemite and boot to it, but post installation failed. You were right on the time remaining, I'm kind of shocked that a note for the time isn't in or added to the guide. (Probably not going to continue with this, it's just such a hassle to get running)

    Recommend creating the USB bootable pen drive in UEFI not Legacy.

    ASUS boards require boot loader to be installed to EFI Partition use to be like that but not sure now. You need to set boot sequence to UEFI Pen drive instead of the just the pen drive.

    If I am able to boot to the USB and installer and install Yosemite (but not post installation), have I done the creation of the bootable USB correctly or is there more to it for the USB side of things?

    If you can boot with the USB and install you have created it correctly.
    Post installation, can you boot the USB, select the OS X icon and boot it to complete the installation and set up a user?

    Select the OS X icon? Not sure what you mean by that, but yes, I am able to create an account and land on the Yosemite desktop. So it looks like my issue is with Clover for post installation.
