I have tried dozens of times on a few different machines, and I have never gotten a Clover install to work. I even have a test box for this and still I can't get it to work. I suppose it's just over my head, and while I'm pretty technical perhaps my knowledge base just isn't sufficient.

I can do a Unibeast install at this point with my eyes closed. But I've read countless websites, used countless creation apps, read tons of forums, and I still can't for the life of me make Clover work.

Is anyone else in the same boat? Am I just missing something basic? Is there like a "Clover for Dummies" website I just haven't found yet? If I had any natural hair left I'd have pulled it all out by now.

Welcome to the club! :thumbup: Although I have tried Clover once, I, too, became frustrated about getting it to work (too long and boring of a story). The closest thing to a "Clover for Dummies", which I've found, is tonymacx86's guide: http://www.tonymacx86.com/yosemite-desktop-guides/144426-how-install-os-x-yosemite-using-clover.html. So, I congratulate all those who have spent their free time learning and having successfully installed OS X using Clover. :clap: But,I decided to await a Beast like utility since the tonymacx86 UniBeast/MultiBeast still work for my purposes. ;)
