Ok, how can I do that? And does the method in post #9 also work?

Remove the HDD from the laptop. Connect to another working Mac/hack. Install the OS X installer to it and a bootloader (I would use Clover). Put HDD back in laptop. Boot to it.

I don't have the ability to predict the future. It is always something you could try.

Ok, thank you. But if I install UniBeast to another partition on my external hard drive, than I assume the other partition won't be removed. Is that true?

What "other partition" are you referring to?

When fiddling with this sort of thing, it is best to use devices that contain data you don't mind losing.

My external hard drive has at the moment 1 partition with files. What if I shrink that partition, and create a new one, Mac OS Extended (Journaled), and than install UniBeast on that partition. Will the files on the first partition be removed, or are they safe?

You should be able to do that. Like I said, you should always prepare for the worst. You should have backups of your files. Hard drives can fail at any moment for no apparent reason, but more common than that is human error while manipulating the contents.

My laptop succesfully boots OS X Yosemite from my external hard drive, but when I boot with this flags: -v -f

I get this screen:

How can I get to the OS X Yosemite Installer?

Use cpus=1

Install KernelPatcher module from Chameleon Wizard to boot without cpus=1.
