yep still nothing.
You are pressing your hotkey to get boot choices from BIOS?
You created using Unibeast on 8GB stick using MBR partitioning?

Yeah I did all that with a 16GB USB which I don't think should prevent my computer from recognizing it as a boot option. The only time I got anything to boot was when I first made a Unibeast USB then used clover boot loader on the USB afterwards. I will try again tonight and will take detailed pics to show you what I got. Thank you for the quick reply btw. I wish I could just send you my computer and 100 bucks for you to do it for me :D

If you use a USB larger than 8GB, you should be certain to create only a single 8GB partition and leave the rest as free space.

Note: It will likely take more than $100 worth of time to make it work... Just trying to set expectations, not offering my services.

here are some pictures of my progress. I tried loading in verbose mode so you can look at it and tell me what I can try.

Did you remove all intel/nvidia kexts from the USB? Try also using dart=0.

Dart=0? Like enter this in verbose mode?
Not Dart=0, but rather dart=0. Flags are generally case sensitive. Type it before hitting enter at the bootloader.

But your graphics will not work (thus why I say remove them all), and it is going to take an expert to figure it out... I think the idea of editing EDID to leave only 1080p is possibly something to try.

Basically right now I am stuck at "BootCacheControl: Unable to open /var/db/BootCache.playlist : 2 No such file or directory" Any ideas on how to get passed this? I already tried dart=0

Please provide complete details in your profile/signature.

System: manufacturer/model
CPU: detailed CPU model + motherboard chipset
Graphics: all graphics devices + laptop internal screen resolution

For example, typical Ivy laptop:
System: HP ProBook 4540s
CPU: i5-3320m/HM76
Graphics: HD4000, 1366x768

Use CPU-Z on Windows to find CPU (Core iX-xxx) and motherboard chipset (HMxx). For a laptop, these details are important and affect critical installation procedures.
