- 4GB DDR3 RAM 
- HD 500GB SATA (AHCI) 
- Video Card Intel HD integrated (I think the HD4000 or HD3000)

Yes. BIOS correct.

 

Mavericks properly installed yesterday, written on the hardware (ASUS F502C series) 

 
It all works. 
AUDIO: yes 
ETHERNET: yes 
VIDEO RESOLUTION: yes (1366x768) 
KEYBOARD: yes 
 
DO NOT WORK: 
- TRACKPAD: no 
- WIRELESS ATHEROS AR9485: no
- SLEEP: no 
- QE / CI on IntelHD, 2000: no 
(Mavericks detects this series, but it really should be an Intel HD3000) 
64 Mb of RAM shared (but in Bios I set to 512Mb of ram for the video card. 
 
Have you an idea?

Maverick detects it as Intel HD2000,
while Lion detects Intel HD3000. 
Technical features of the Asus official site, he writes that it is a Integrated Intel ® HD Graphics 987/847
 
Link to the technical features Asus X502

In your opinion, should I install with GUID partition or MBR, since it is a 64bit? 
EFI bootloader?
 
You will get the Quartz Extreme and Core Image on this card Intel HD? I do not care to get the HDMI, but only graphics acceleration. 
I'm following a guide on another forum where I am writing for many years, but I will not cite the source so as not to create publicity.
Thank

Before putting on my Hackintosh,
the machine had Windows 8, here I tried to read the hardware with Everest, but I think that it was not reliable, since they gave me as a result of a video card Intel HD4000. 
The idea to try a Linux distro I had not thought about, read the hardware with an external drive and I will tell you the exact values ​​Vendor ID.
 
From this information, I could start to run the graphics acceleration (QE / CI). 
 
To the question EFI - Bios, since the laptop is 64bit with EFI support (remember that I have a lot of difficulty of installation), you in my place, what would you have done installing considered these difficulties? 
 
I lost the many years of hackintosh, when started from 2007 with 10.4 (Tiger), were other times and other forums. 
 
Thank you all for your answers
