Hello Guys, I have clean installed the OS X El Capitan. Created USB bootable drive from the guide: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-booting-the-os-x-installer-on-laptops-with-clover.148093/

The installation went smooth. Everything was working fine. Installed CLOVER UEFI on my SSD. Booted through the main SSD few times. Now out of nowhere the system starts booting into a blank screen. I can confirm the system itself has booted as the sound works. I have tried using OsxAptioFix2Drv-64.efi in place of OsxAptioFixDrv-64.efi(Didnt work). I have tried not injecting Graphics(Intel HD4000) at all(Didnt worked). I have tried different ig-platform-id(Didnt Work). The important thing is my system boots just fine when i boot it from External Drive(Which has OS X Yosemite on it along with CLOVER). I have tried all the things I can but i am unable to resolve this problem. I am attaching my CLOVER folder(from main SSD) which is causing this problem.

Thanks in advance for any help

You did not follow the guide:
- your config.plist is not from my guide
- you have patched ACPI (but incorrect implementation of backlight control)
- your ACPI files are not in sync... different SystemMemory addresses:

There is some bad news. This morning the system won't even boot from external HDD clover as it was booting the previous night. Also the yosemite installation on my external media(which worked fine until yesterday) fails to boot too. I think there is some problem with BIOS implementation by my laptop's manufacturer. So with this sad situation another era of me trying to get a stable hackintosh machine comes to an end. Since 2014 i havent had any luck in building and maintaining a daily driver machine. I think I should just buy a MacBook instead of going through all these hassles. But i may return back to this community again whenever this crafts gets on my head again. I would like to thank you for replying to every issue i faced. You are doing your great deal for this community. Carry on the good work.
