Getting a new ACPI DSDT from MaciASL is not recommended imo, extracting ACPI tables (DSDT, SSDT, etc.) from Linux (i.e. Ubuntu) is recommended for a more accurate extraction. Try doing that and re-applying your audio patches.
If you have a lot of fragments of left over Clover files, you should just wipe your hard drive completely and start over, as those may be conflicting. Same solution for your "lingering boot partition", "EFI boot partition" suspicions.
And at this point it's almost certain that doing something in MB is preventing it from booting properly or improperly detecting your HDD.
Ok, that's an interesting way to get ACPI tables haha. And I have re-partitioned my boot drive several times (each time I re-install). Is that not basically completely wiping it? (shows how much I know lol)
Also, I did some more forum research and realized that I might be missing a kext. Namely: Intel Generic AHCI SATA. It says that it supports x79 boards, which is what I have. Up till this point I have only installed 3rd Pary SATA kext. Apparently my board has two SATA controllers and one of them is supported by 3rd Party SATA and maybe this Intel Generic kext is what I need to support the other?
I'll re-install Yosemite and give it a shot and let you guys know
