Try to

  • [*]Change USB port [*]Boot with flag 
npci=x2000 [*]-x [*]cpus=1

Also, make sure your SATA drive is not connected to an 6GB/s port.

Hello Niresh 
 
I also got this with the boot Mavericks. 
 
My hardware is this: 
 
ASUS F502CA 
- CPU Intel Pentium ULV B987 1.50Ghz DualCore (Ultra Low Volge) Sandy Bridge
- 4GB DDR3 RAM 
- HD 500GB SATA (AHCI) 
- Video Card Intel HD integrated (I think the HD4000 or HD3000) 
- Intel HDA Audio
- Networking:
  Atheros AR8161 (Ethernet)
  Atheros AR9485 (wireless)
 
You think I can fit the distro Mavericks or Mountain Lion?
