Failed to boot MACOSX El Capitan USB into my Acer 8951G Laptop: Windows boot all the time!!


Failed to boot the usb MACOSX El Capitan into my Acer 8951G Laptop: Boots windows all the time

I am trying to install El Capitan to my laptop Acer Ethos 8951G laptop.

I did my USB boot drive accordig to the OS X El Capitan 10.11 U{censored} 6 Clover Installation Guide .

So I made the Boot USB and then I went to the Bios of my Laptop and there is not such "Optimised defaults" so I loaded the default Bios values and saved them. Then I changed the boot order with F12 to boot from the USB stick but nothing happened ... and Windows 7 starts loading up...

Iam lost because no matter which method I follow when i try to boot it do not recognize the USB boot drive and runs immediately to windows.

Help here what I need to do...

You don't write anything with uefi ...
It sounds like Clover is installed in efi Mode and not in Legacy mode

Hi can u check finalize installation section there is a section called Clover UEFI.

EFI where is clover installed and its always creates EFI folder ,so make sure u are on legacy or UEFI
