Request help with HP ProBook 4530S BIOS

Question

I have an HP ProBook 4530s, supposedly one of the best and easiest computers for Hackintoshing. My current setup is Linux Mint 17 and Windows 7. Ideally, I would like to install OSX in a tri-boot setup, but if I can get the installer to load I am going to test on a blank drive.
 
I have been able to install and run Mavericks in VirtualBox using the ISO. However, Maverisks (.dmg)  and Mountain Lion (.dmg) will not boot from my flash drive. Yes, I choose to boot from USB at start up. Nothing happens and system continues on to my bootloader (grub). Yosemite is the only one I can get my system to start to boot.
 
If I try to boot with no flags, it gets stuck with this message and just keeps repeating:
 
disk1s1: media is not present.
disk1s1: media is not present.
disk1s1: media is not present.
disk2s2: 0x6 (UNDEFINED)
Sat Dec 27 09:17:25 2014 localhost com.apple.xpc.launchd[1] (come.apple.ReportCrash.Root.427) <Error>: Service could not initialize: 14A389: xpcproxy + 14045 [1344][1016C726-9ACF-3A24-9C51-A279F5C6B167]: 0x5
Sat Dec 27 09:17:25 2014 localhost com.apple.xpc.launchd[1] )come.apple.ReportCrash.Root) <Notice>: Service only ranfro 0 seconds. Pushing respawn out by 10 seconds
Where is says  (com.apple.ReportCrash.Root.427) the number increases endlessness, but appears to start around 400.
 
In another post (I think in Mavericks) Niresh had told someone with an HP to boot with "hp -v" but I get the error that no library called hp was found.
 
I have followed the tutorials as best I can, but they often mention settings that are not present on my BIOS (like HPET). I'm sure this is a BIOS issue, just not sure what setting I am missing. My system is as follows:
 
HP ProBook 4530s 
i3 Processor
8GB Ram
Hewlett-Packard BIOS 68SRR Ver. F.09
1TB HDD (Partitioned with Windows 7/ Linux Mint 17/ File storage/ unformated space for future OSX)
 
Thanks for any suggestions!!

@kallen The boot-loader with the DMG wont boot your Virtual Machine

Instead you have to use the ISO File

I guess I wasn't clear, my apologies. I was saying that I have been able to install Mavericks in a Virtual Box, but when booting from USB to attempt actual install to the HDD nothing happens.

 

Interestingly, Yosemite 10.10 will give me the error I quoted above, so at least my PC boots from the USB. I decided to try the newest 10.10.1 but it doesn't do anything at all upon boot, just like Mountain Lion and Mavericks. What am I missing that only the 10.10 will even boot? I am using the .dmg downloads and using Image Writer to make the USB.

So I boot back windows 10 and replace everything. But when I try to install yosemite again, sill I'm facing the probelm. Keyboard not working at selecting Yosemite zone screen. Keyboard is well functioning at BIOS screen, advanced boot option screen, even in my windows 10. But it freeze at the below screen. I tried everything, changed my Boot mode to UEFI and Legacy, reset CMOS by removing CMOS battery, restarted minimum 50 times, Changed my keyboard from USB to PS2, changed my USB keyboard port to every port. Please help me to solve this.   My System Config :   Intet i3-2120 CPU@3.30GHz 1 TB Hard drive 8 GB Ram 2GB GT610 graphic card Keyboard freeze at this screen.
