It might or might not. The UEFI has to have direct PCIe to CPU boot capability, usually found only on those boards with a m.2 socket built into the board. If you want to try it and it does not work, all is not lost. You can get a http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812186244&cm_re=m.2_sata_adapter-_-12-186-244-_-Product ...

Given the age of that tech and the G33M chip you will have a hard time getting OS X to run on it. Not too sure about that 7300LE GPU either. Try using the iBoot Legacy CD and boot with -v -x GraphicsEnabler=Yes
