Hello, I'm new here... When I download the El Capitan post-install tools, Avast detects it and blocks the rest of the download. Is this a false positive? I just want to be sure, better safe than sorry...
Yes, that is a false positive, we have checked all the software and there is no risk in
downloading any of those tools. Just temporarily disable avast and then download.

Will this upgrade work fine if I am dual booting currently with Chimera? Dual booting separate drives. SSD is for Yosemite OS and an HDD that is partitioned for Windows. Will it be fine just upgrading over my current Chimera bootloader?
"Prepare for OS X El Capitan by backing up and removing your existing bootloader and extra files. This is an optional step for UEFI users- Clover and Chimera can co-exist on most UEFI-capable systems by choosing UEFI or Legacy mode for the drive at boot time."

No luck with creating OS X El Capitan disk on "Gigabyte Z68MA-D2H-B3 UEF1 U1C bios" from El Capitan Clover Install USB that I created successfully.
Tried every boot option and settings with no luck, any suggestions appreciated.
I use this same chipset and have successfully installed El Capitan using the Clover Unibeast.

I was not successful initially because my UEFI U1C bios was set to boot Legacy only. It needs to be set up to boot UEFI or UEFI and Legacy. Setting Optimized Defaults will likely change this setting to UEFI and Legacy.

Once you make this change in the bios, and invoke the bios boot menu, you will see your UNIbeast USB listed prefaced with a "UEFI:". Choose this to boot from.

What would be great is if someone with more skills than myself made a Guide to upgrade the 2011 CustoMac Mini to 10.11, ideally from 10.9. I never bothered to upgrade to 10.10.

Processing UniBeast now.

Clover works just fine, if you read how to set it up. Don't blame Tony because you dont want to read and follow the guide. That's just being lazy and complaining because someone else wont do the work for you.

You issue is either a bad USB stick or an issue on the system you are running UniBeast.

Why no Chimera was previously answered.

Use a different USB stick. It worked for me (after getting that error).
