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

    • Greetings to you all! My hackintosh is running macOS High Sierra 10.13.2 and I was able to fix sleep and shutdown issues with a series of terminal commands. They must be entered in the order listed below. I hope it helps you guys too.

      sudo defaults write /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.securityd ExitTimeOut -int 5

      sudo defaults write /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.mDNSResponder ExitTimeOut -int 5

      sudo defaults write /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.diskarbitrationd ExitTimeOut -int 5

      sudo defaults write /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.coreservices.appleevents ExitTimeOut -int 5

    • Hello, First of all, I'm starting with my pc configuration,    Processor: Core i3-6100 Motherboard: G1 Sniper B7 with 8GB Ram. GPU: AMD Radeon R7 370 So, I want to make my PC in Hackintosh. Is it meet Hackintosh compatibility? And which version should I go with like( Sierra, High Sierra etc.) with Process? I need your help. Thanks in Advance                                                                                                                                                                             
    • I wasn't being lazy, I looked through my whole bios and I couldn't find all the setting you are telling me to change, but I still found some of them. Once I change the settings, what should I do?
    • When I unzip Restore High Sierra I just get the .pkg. I'm not about to install the pkg on my main HD unless I know what it's going to do. 
    • Niresh, first of all, thank you for your help. I can't disable the NVIDIA GPU, even on the BIOS settings, there is no such option. I have even looked on the manufacturer help fórum, there is nothing in that regard. Is there a way to make these DSDT patches on your release? Could you make a guide or a video of it? I tried looking at some guides on tonymacx86.com, but it's too complicated for me (and also, I don't have a running version of MacOS on my computer). https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/fix-window-server-service-only-ran-for-0-seconds-with-dual-gpu.233092/ https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-dell-inspiron-14-7460-series-7000-uefi-hotpatch.236039/
