Question

Hi im stuck at the apple logo before the install process just after booting the usb drive. The apple logo comes up the the little spinning thing at the bottom of the screen comes up and it spins for a few minutes then it just stops spinning. I have tried booting with "-v'' ''-x'' ''GraphicsEnabler=yes/no'' and ''-s''. I have no erased my hard drive completely because i would like to dual boot both windows and OS X. I am running pretty much stock besides windows 8.1 my specs are
3 GB ram
Graphics Processor Intel GMA 4500MHD
Chipset Mobile Intel GM45 Express
Intel® Core™ 2 Duo processor
Please help really would like to get this to work.
