Do not touch option 'Boot > PCI ROM Priority', in my case it crashes the BIOS and a clear CMOS is then needed
Patched BIOS to avoid kernel panic with AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kext
You can use NullCPUPowerManagement.kext (no Intel SpeedStep and no sleep) or patch the BIOS using UEFIPatch:

Flash your BIOS using 'ASUS EZ Flash 2 Utility' and file
My tests (sleep, wake, shutdown..) have concluded that there is no need to generate a patched

When using Nvidia Web Driver with a MSI GeForce GTX 970 GAMING 4G, I randomly get
Error allocating 0x800 pages at boot time in verbose mode.I couldn't fix this issue.
I've tried to replace
OsxAptioFixDrv-64.efi without success: I then always get
Error - requested memory exceeds our allocated relocation block.
Tested using Clover v2.3k r3766 (packaged with MultiBeast 9.0.1), r3974 and r3998.
See issue #2 for possible solutions.
BIOS boot entry
The ASUS P8Z68 UEFI BIOS will recognize a USB key configured with Clover 'Install for UEFI booting only' but not a hard drive.

Open 'Clover > Start UEFI Shell 64' and play with
