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?

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
