Tony's guide worked for me. I installed El Capitan on an HP Z400 using Unibeast, and Enoch Chameleon.
I have a Z400 as well. With a AMD R9 280x, which shouldn't ba a problem as this card is supported OOB and my version has Mac-EFI (dual EFI card) and the box is branded as a Mac card, and the 280x is a well known OOB card. I can't get to the installer, get a panicas the image shows. Any suggestions would be helpful. Tried the guide in this thread with no luck. Can't seem to get past Clover with Unibeast as only one boot-device on USB shows up. Fiddled with BIOS to try to get around this with no luck. Since you solved it maybe you can tell me how. :)

By the way... anyone who has answers to my questions may respond as well. ;)

Below is another pic of the screen from another attempt, but with another KP. As you can see I tried a number of boot-arguments without success:

I switched to Clover some time ago and can no longer recall how I got things to work using Enoch Chameleon. What boot arguments have you tried?
