For some reason I get a completely black screen (Even if booting verbose) when I select the USB for install. Any idea whats going on? I have the Lenovo Z50-70

Boot verbose, show photo. Attach EFI/Clover folder as ZIP (omit 'themes' folder).

The EFI/Clover you provided in post #5 already uses iMac17,1.

But marking solved...
Oops... uploaded the wrong one. My mistake.

Anyways, I got it installed, but for some reason it did it as an upgrade rather than a fresh install? Also, wifi isn't working. Some keys on keyboard don't work, trackpad settings just show a blank screen. Those are just to name a few.. any idea on why this is happening?

Edit: Ethernet work.

Fresh install is only accomplished by erasing the target partition before you run the OS X installer.

Also, wifi isn't working.

Depends on having supported WiFi hardware, software to support it, and any patches required (depends on hardware, SMBIOS in use, etc).

Some keys on keyboard don't work, trackpad settings just show a blank screen.

Known problems.

Those are just to name a few.. any idea on why this is happening?

It is a beta. Apple designs its software for Macs, not PCs.
